We are excited to have one of our in-store jewelry artists showing her many talents in the gallery. Kalee Jones W. brings a multidiscipline approach to her work with a focus in both sculptural stained glass and abstract style acrylic paintings. The many colors and textures seen in the glass bring inspiration for Kalee and she hopes to bring a closer connection between her sculptures and paintings as she continues to explore the two mediums.
