Wendy Faith, Artist in Glass

Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico

Wendy Faith was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and lived most of her adult life on Mayne Island where she raised 2 sons and experimented with a wide variety of materials and techniques. Wendy is a self taught artist and worked extensively with cloth, wood, paint and light metal, but her main focus for the last 20 years has been glass. She moved to Todos Santos in 1992 and opened Las Casitas, a successful bed and breakfast. Wendy incorporated her glass art works in the decoration of the rooms and hand painted murals on many of the walls. In 1998 Wendy converted one of the inn's rooms to use as her new art glass studio.
 
Wendy specializes in working with architectural quality art glass; she produces works by commission and her own inspired artist pieces. She creates windows, door panels, skylights, ambiance lighting, objects d'art and a line of kiln worked silverware. Wendy uses the full range of techniques in the creation of her unique glass art pieces. The techniques include painted glass, acid etched glass, slumping, fusion, leaded glass and copper channeling methods.

Her extensive 20 year focus on working in glass exemplifies Wendy's sense that simple practice has been the essence of her artistic evolution. To quote her - "When your first try doesn't get you there, you just keep at it - always with an exacting eye to improvement. Never accept second best effort. It is a rigorous way to learn, but has the charm of discovering wonderland for ones own self."
 
Wendy participated in past Todos Santos Art Festivals and in shows at the Galeria de Todos Santos. Her works can be viewed at Las Casitas Bed and Breakfast. Since she also manages her bed and breakfast she can usually be found in or near her studio all week long, but calling ahead is suggested.
 
The gallery of Wendy Faith is located in Las Casitas not far from the center of town on Calle Rangel between Calle Hidalgo and Calle Obregon.
