Snjezana

Born in a war-torn communist country, Snjezana experienced first-hand what it was like to live without many things.  She remembers many nights studying by candlelight because they had no electricity.  When she was eight her grandparents helped her escape, bringing her to America. The plane landed into a world of freedom and marvelous new things: for the first time Snjezana experienced water from a faucet and lights everywhere!  She was in her own fairy tale – the beginning of a new life and journey.

Snjezana’s Fine Art Creations are inspired by her own trials and adventures in life, as well as her passionate love of nature, people, and animals.  Her life story has helped to shape and foster her imagination, developing different perspectives and appreciation for how intricate life is – and how we are all connected. Her journey as an immigrant, as a nurse, and as an artist have all delivered life lessons of the mind, the body, and the spirit.

Snjezana hopes her creations move others to see the world in a different lens, be grateful for the good in life, and help them in healing their spirit by inspiring happiness and peace through her works.

Curator’s edit:  Snjezana’s work is very unique. She travels, capturing moments through her camera – but comes home to hand paint them. When living in a communist environment as a child, her grandparents hid her colored pencils under the floorboards so she could keep them safe from being taken. She taught herself to paint on her photographs with her fingers! She takes markers apart, adds water or alcohol to the colors, blending the colors onto her photographs *with her fingers*. It’s a powerful ritual of bringing coloration to captured moments we might otherwise overlook, and a reflection of her childhood experience of finding color in an otherwise difficult life.

with green eyes. After graduating from KSU in 1975, he opened a stained glass shop near Akron U. He’s made art glass for the area for forty four years. Always learning new glass making techniques, he makes kiln cast and fused glass, hand beveled and blown glass. He teaches beginning and advanced glass blowing. Sun, Rain, and Gardens For my display at the Mustard Seed Cafe I’ve made new windows featuring our weather blessings that make the vegetables grow.

Sun and rain, earth and water are represented not very realistically. My focus is more on the glass as an art/ craft material; learning ancient techniques and using them in new ways to expand the stained glass vocabulary.

I may take flat pieces of stained glass and fuse them together in a kiln, take that to the hot shop and blow it into a bubble, spin that bubble out into flat glass again, then grind and polish prism edges on it. The leaded panels are a device to hold that piece of shiny glass up to the light. That’s all.
