Water Oak Glass Artist, Dana Helton has been creating Stained Glass Art using Tiffany and Old World methods since 2001. My passion for horses had taken many twists and turns over the years and developed into breeding horses. In 2001, while awaiting the birth of my first foal, I began lessons with a local glass artist. I was HOOKED! I continued lessons working my way into an apprenticeship for 3 years.
My passion for horses, horse breeding and stained glass is still a large part of my daily life. I have continued my education in glass by learning to fused glass to create jewelry pieces since 2016. Most recently I have been creating Lanterns, Mosaics and functional Art.
I enjoy all types of Art including Whimsical, Elegant, Industrial, Contemporary, Garden Art to Pet Portraits.
Let’s get together and CREATE SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU SMILE.
I began doing art work when I retired. My paintings in oil consist of abstracts with heavy paint that is enough to be almost considered 3-D and landscapes that more recently are barebones concepts of trees or their skeletons in an abstract environment. I have began using old CDs and acrylic paint to make 3-D images on canvass. I am also doing small (about 5″ x 5″ x 5″) glass sculptures in abstract shapes and colors. As ideas and images come to my mind making them into something reduces time to a nonentity.
