“Tested By Fire A Portrait of Ann Richards”, 2019, 6″ x 6″, stained glass
“My work as a mosaic artist draws from my background as a photographer. As photography left the darkroom for the desktop, I found I missed the hands-on process of creating. Striving to create a representation of the scene I see, be it on film or in glass, is my pursuit.
I have begun creating portraits of women who have contributed to our world in unique ways. Ann Richards was a favorite of mine-outspoken and real. She was the 45th governor of Texas from 1991-1995. She didn’t let the world intimidate her. She excelled despite the good ole’ boy network that is Texas politics. Her quote, “I’ve been tested by fire and the fire lost.” sums her up. Rest in peace Ann.”
