Vancouver Island based Glass artist, Sabine Arends, has been creative for most parts of her life. Born in Germany she moved to Canada in 1996. In 2004 she began teaching workshops in a variety of mediums and developed her vision to “Connect Art, Craft and Creative Minds”.
While traveling, during her flight attendant time and her husband’s military career, photography kept her creative mind active. Her initial art works included mosaics, stepping stones, stained glass and fused glass jewelry.
Recently her projects have evolved into bigger statement pieces of one of a kind wall and garden art where she utilizes colorful fused glass or acrylic paint as mediums. Her specialty is to include dichroic glass in her artwork to add a little extra sparkle and dimension to her pieces.
Inspired by nature and bold colour, Sabine aims to share her passion for protecting the environment. When not creating, she loves to spend her time in nature.
