Stained glass artist Marcia Greene is originally from New York City. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in fine arts with an emphasis on sculpture and jewelry design from SUNY Albany, NY in 1971. When Marcia began working with glass in 1978, she found it to be the ideal medium for her, as it incorporated the three-dimensional aspect of sculpture with the detail and glitter of jewelry making, and she has made it the focus of her art ever since. Besides utilizing thousands of types of glass, Marcia enhances many pieces with metal accents and embellishments and other media such as geodes, crystals, stones, and shells. Marcia says, for her, “design inspiration is everywhere: nature, real life, photos, [my own] imagination,” and her style can run the gamut from Victorian to modern abstract, making each work a different and fascinating experience.

Marcia is part of a therapeutic treatment team that encourages and guides the clients with substance abuse and mental health issues to use various artistic mediums to create their own works of art to work through their issues. She believes that art and the act of creating has a healing effect on people and is grateful to be able to use her knowledge and talents to help others.

Artist, Joyce Brown

 

 

Joyce Brown is the director of Flamingo Clay Studio – Clay, Glass, Metal and Stone Gallery in Lake Worth, Florida. Her earliest childhood memories include drawing on the walls, the floor and even her own body at every opportunity. She felt compelled to decorate whatever was at hand. Joyce’s father gave her a set of oil paints which she used to create copies of the artworks that were hung in her home. She painted copies of Covarrubias, Picasso, Renoir and Degas. Her interest in art continued to grow and she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts as well as a Master of Education/Master of Fine Arts from Temple University, Tyler School of Fine Arts.

Joyce shared her love for fine arts through her many years of teaching students of all ages and abilities, holding Certifications for Teacher of Art K-12 and Teacher of Neurologically Impaired and Brain Injured Children. She also was a member of the Germantown Pottery Guild for over 35 years, where she developed a heart for social conscience. She sees artistic expression in all of life, and uses her creativity and experience to create businesses and organizations which use art to support peace and social justice issues. Joyce says, “When [these] issues took precedence…, I marched and marched making buttons and posters to enhance the efforts of the movement[s]”. Some of her pet projects over the years include Swords into Plowshares, The Blushing Zebra (a non-profit coffee house), Germantown Women’s Y, and WISDOM – Education of Women with HIV/AIDS.
