Christine Kende holds Fine Arts degrees in Music and Education. She paints with glass because it combines material science and the physics of glass and art. She has painted with watercolor and acrylic but found her 'voice' is in glass.
Originally from New Mexico, she gave up the more arid landscape of Utah to be closer to the great Pacific Ocean.
