STAINED GLASS RESTORATION


Before I began a career as a graphic designer, I spent years training as a stained glass restoration and painting apprentice. I worked with master craftsman to cultivate my skills in drawing, pattern making, glazing and glass painting. This period has had a significant impact on my work ethic and career as a designer.
