Christy Wiesenhahn

Christy Wiesenhahn studied painting in the BFA program at Indiana University and art education. She started working with glass about 19 years ago after taking an introductory class with Alice Sesak in Miller Beach, Indiana. Glass and painting usually take turns in her artistic life. At times she works primarily as a painter, traveling with her watercolors and creating oil paintings in her studio. And for periods, glass will be her primary medium as she works out designs and how light interacts with dueling and friendly colors. Her biggest goal in the upcoming years is to merge the two disciplines and work with glass in public art. In the summer of 2014, she completed a skateable interactive sculpture in the Peru, Indiana Skatepark that incorporates glass mosaics and a 5' steel skateboard with embedded glass.
