Janet Smith

Born and raised in the Washington, D.C., area, Janet Smith's interest in art began at a young age. Her father was a writer and her mother a dancer. She assumed she'd grow up to be one or the other, but in college she fell in love with painting and earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in painting and printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Upon graduation, she looked for a way to make a living with her art skills. ``I realized with glass I could do fine art and design in the same medium,'' she said. ``I liked having the range and I thought I could make it into a business and work for myself, not work somewhere else and do art on the side.'' Smith often vacations on the Outer Banks. ``It's my favorite place to go to the beach,'' she said. Color is what makes her glass expressive, Smith said. For her, light has all sorts of incredible energy. ``I'm fascinated by the way it plays upon things,'' she said.

``The designer in me is fascinated by quality of light.'' Smith starts out with a loose idea of what she wants to achieve. Working spontaneously, she is apt to change focus throughout the process. ``I work in a painterly fashion, adding and taking away.'' I hope you enjoy your stained glass mirror for years to come.
