I love what stained glass does with light, how the look of the glass changes as the light changes!
Having worked with stained glass for over 10 years, I am still finding new ideas and avenues of creativity! I also enjoy the challenge of working with a client, as it pushes me in directions I may not have considered.
I hope my work makes you smile with recognition of the graceful curves of a canoe slipping along a quiet lake, the calmness of a misty blue iris or a cheerful dandelion.
My influences include nature and sights I have seen during my travels. Much of my recent work focuses on the lake where my husband and I retreat.
I Grew up in the Village of Bristol, now Town of Florenceville-Bristol. I Currently live in East Glassville (out towards Juniper). The Railroad used to run right beside the house in Bristol and I had always walked the track and was picking up railroad spikes even back then, just never thought of doing anything with them until I had finished my construction career but was still wanting to keep busy in my shop. After making my first piece and then having to make more for family members who wanted them, It just seemed to keep evolving. Now, the more I do, the more I think up to do, or people ask for special ones. It’s really satisfying to have someone take a piece and tell you it’s perfect, just what they were looking for!
Ann Kittredge says that she came late to the formal study of art and had a "first life" in science; much of her imagery arises from a consideration of issues and phenomena which reside in that area where science, art, and spirituality intersect. In her mixed media works, the layers of collage, ink, paint, etchings, and other materials suggest multiple levels of meaning and reflect the physical, intellectual, and spiritual concerns which inspire the work.

My mother always said I was born with a pencil in my hand. By the age of twelve I was working in oils and in my early twenties I discovered watercolour and have since been intrigued by the complexities of the medium. My favourite subjects to paint are landscapes, florals and architecture. I love teaching and sharing my knowledge.
