Sheila Brannan makes stained glass objects that incorporate found objects, antique bottles, glass jewels, sea shells, beach glass and sliced geodes, in addition to glass in an array of colors and textures. Her small window pieces, bursts of color, fit nicely into home windows and nooks, and her large installations bring light and color to public spaces.
"I offer unique design solutions for my clients’ work and home environments. I take pride in the ability to communicate, to hear clients' needs and translate them into visual solutions with impact. My abilities encompass pure art as well as creative functional design."
Sheila began making stained glass after being inspired by a bathroom window cover with a stained glass pattern. It felt like a bolt from above, and she steadily learned through the tools and natural learning curve of being self-taught.
Her work can be seen in many places, including recent installations in the Panhandle Hospice Center and the Peace Pentagon in Virginia. She is also a member of Tamarack: the Best of WV.
