Hi there, my name is Helen. I’m a native Michigander, born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit.
Art has always been a big part of my life going back to childhood days when I learned to paint and draw. My father who was a very talented artist always encouraged me to explore my artistic abilities. Honestly art has just come natural to me as long as I can remember.
In 2012 Glass By Helen was established in a small studio in Morgan Hill, CA.
My fused glass collections are personally designed and carefully executed by me. I take pride in creating unique pieces of art.
My biggest enabler is my husband who helped me get my start as a glass artist. He worked out all of the details needed to install and set up 4 kilns in my studio. He even had a hand in loading and unloading my kilns on my first commercial commission.
I’ve been commissioned by large companies and private individuals to create custom, one of a kind piece of art.
When I’m not creating glass art I’m usually painting. My love for drawing and painting started at an early age. Painting takes me away to another world where I find serenity and relaxation. You can see some of my work below.
I gladly accept custom requests and especially enjoy working on custom designs because it gives me the chance to work one on one with my customers to create unique custom art.
