Cheryl Chapman ~ Art Glass Artisan

A full time Mountain Resident for the past 5 years, Cheryl Chapman has brought her unique creative talent in Art Glass, to our community. Cheryl began her “glass” career in 1990, after graduating from CSULB with a degree in Psychology, and feeling the need for something more creative. She enrolled in a stained glass course at a junior college where she learned the basics and began to hone her skills. Continuing to take more advanced classes her talent began to emerge. She soon found a position at Stained Glass studio in Downey where the owner encouraged her to continue classes, including the art of glass fusing. Combining all of her skill and experience over the years, Cheryl now creates one of a kind “Art Glass“ pieces including unique Boxes, Coasters, and Stained Glass. Her ability to blend colored glass, metallic paint, natural material such as polished stones and wood , results in beautiful functional Art pieces.
