Janice Moorhead — Glass
Originally from Montreal, after having spent three years in Ottawa, I soon relocated to a lovely community in the gatineau hills close to Wakefield. This where I have spent the past 30 years raising two children and creating my art. In 1979 I received an honours degree in visual arts from the University of Ottawa. While my studies were mostly in the realm of painting and print making, it was quite soon after graduation that I discovered glass. Because of its luminosity and perfect surface quality it soon replaced paint as my medium of choice. Currently I am known across Canada for my glass work, having created a body of work over the past 30 years that employs a rather unique “painterly” approach to stained glass. I have exhibited in numerous art and craft shows, Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, New Art Festival (Ottawa), Artfest Kingston, and Haliburton.
