In a recent interview, Doreen answered the following:

Why did you choose to specialize in horse themed stained glass?

“For years I’ve struggled with portraying horses in different media. I was never satisfied with my ability (or lack thereof) of capturing the beauty of the horse. Initially, I began trying to simplify my sketches to capture the “impression” of the horse which resulted in abstract illustrations. Coincidentally, I was doing stained glass at the time, and recognized these horse sketches could translate to glass patterns that did not have the typical stilted “coloring book” look that is so often seen when searching for stained glass horse pieces.”

What is the purpose of GlassWish?

“Well, practically speaking – I love stained glass and horses and have combined them into a business. But more importantly for me – it’s more than just a practical decision. I strive to abstractly portray the beauty of the horse in glass by reducing the lines, muscles and impression of the horse to a few significant lines, accented by the glass texture and color.
