For Kim Loxley Belleavoine, painting on glass is her obsession and sharing this with others has made it even better.
“I’ve been working with glass as my canvas for the past 17 years. It’s constantly evolving which keeps me motivated and excited to get into the studio every morning. I love taking ordinary subject matter and transforming it my own way with patterns, color, shape, and line. The biggest thrill is taking a finished piece outside to get the full effect with the natural light shining through.
“I hold a bachelor’s degree in Art Education, which was my career up until the birth of my second daughter. Once she was in school full time, I returned to the workforce as the gardener at a high end, rustic restaurant/farm in Brooklyn, Ct, where I stayed for 9 wonderful years. My art was always present, especially in the off season from the farm. During that time, I would work on my painted glass, and participate in local art shows throughout the holiday season. Two years ago, I decided to take a leap and become a full time artist, exhibiting year round in art festivals, teaching art workshops and painting full time in my studio, in Chepachet, RI.
“I look forward to everyday, being able to use my creativity and share it with others.”
