Stained Glass has grown from a part-time venture, formed in
the early 1980's to a full-time dedicated operation which has
been established since 1989.
The Principal of North Lights Stained Glass was born and grew
up on the West Coast of Sweden. The "Northern Lights"
of Sweden were always particularly fascinating to the Artist
as a child and this has been the inspiration of many of her
stained glass creations, as has the sea and marine life of the
North Sea forming the West Coast of Sweden.
Initially trained as a research linguist, the artist's early
career was established in international trade and commerce.
She took advantage of her worldwide travels to capture images,
textures and especially colours drawn from many cultures, which
she has been able to apply to her stained glass creations; whether
they are restorations, and simple or complex commissions. North
Lights stained glass creations are now in place in England,
Sweden, USA, Holland, France, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia and
The Artist initially learned stained glass techniques by attending
part-time courses, which very quickly led to more ambitious
pursuit of further training and individual residential courses
in UK and abroad.
From the Mid 1980's the Artist has also shared her stained glass
enthusiasm and skills with others who want to develop their
own skills, by teaching at both local colleges and from the
North Lights own workshop facilities.
North Lights stained glass website features examples of the
Artist's commission work and also of the flexible range of programmes
which she offers to adults in her capacity as a national qualified
stained glass teacher.
