The Sharpie Artist Story

I didn’t mean to create this website.

I was happily working on another huge project when in came a commission from a friend who wanted a window.

A window with my Sharpie art.

God, I love Sharpies.

Last fall, I wrote an article on a whim: creating “stained glass” with Sharpies.  It was a fun afternoon project and I admit, I just wanted something fun to write about.

I never thought I’d end up creating a website for it.  I never dreamed I would have people asking me to create these stained glass Sharpie windows for them.

And you want to know another secret?

I wasn’t entirely sure just how interested I was in this endeavor, even after a couple people had asked me about these windows.

My friend Kelly, aka Real Housewife, commissioned me to do this and as I started working with these oil-based Sharpies, something happened.

I had the biggest, stupidest grin on my face for the two days it took to create this abstract art on an old window.

It wasn’t because I specifically was doing this artwork, but unique and innovative and just plain cool were the words that sprouted to my mind.

Take a look for yourself:

Here’s what the Sharpie art on the window looks                         like with some light shining through.

So yes, if you’d like a window, too, let me know.  It will take me about two weeks to complete: to source the window, sand off the old paint on the frame, apply new paint to the frame of the window, scrape excess paint from the glass, and apply a Sharpie design.
