About the Artist:
A self-taught artist, Lin Kogle has been a decorative painter since 2000. She credits her daughter, Michelle, with her love for painting glassware. “Michelle was getting married right after I retired from the corporate world. She asked me to paint some wine glasses for her bridesmaids. I had never painted before then, but I reluctantly agreed to create some simple floral designed goblets for her. Everyone loved them, so a new craft hobby developed.”
After that time, Lin bought a few painting books and a video and began practicing certain paint strokes and designs. She decided to make it a small business, selling her works at local craft shows, gift shops and wineries. Classy Glass was born! She still primarily paints on glass, but also does work on wood, slate, and even walls.
