I grew up in a family where my artistic endeavors were supported. My father, Chris Benvie, was a prolific painter. People said I inherited my father’s talent but what I believe I inherited was that drive that he had for the creative process. As an artist I am most excited when I can find an interesting composition in my everyday surroundings and interpret that in glass using light and color. I marvel at the shape of a cast shadow on a roadside or the vibrancy of foliage at dusk. I am inspired to look at the world around me with a keen eye towards the brilliance of color. Like the work of Matisse and Derain I use intense color and dynamic lines to translate reality. Kiln fired glass is the media that reveals this beauty to its utmost. I enjoy the technique of using glass to create something that is both abstract and literal.
