Hi, my name is Kara, I have always painted and drawn since childhood, it wasn’t until the late 1990’s that I picked up my first engraving pen and made my first mark on a piece of glass. Inspired by the way the light changed direction when it hit the engraving made me experiment with different diamond burs, grindstones and abrasive wheels to create different effects and textures on the glass, much the same way an artist would use a pen & pencil.
All my work is completely done by hand from the initial drawing through the engraving and hand polishing. I pride myself in the fact that absolutely no sandblasting or laser engraving techniques are used in any of my work. This is an art form itself, creating a unique one of a kind masterpiece making a very personal and unique gift or award.
I can undertake a large variety of commissions from household pets, animal portraits, builds and vehicles. Unfortunately I cannot undertake commissions of human portraits.
