Austin is such an artist's paradise. Well, at least there are many phenomenal artists who live here. Whether they consider it a paradise or not is something they'll have to tell you.
Rejina Johnson is a phenomenal glass artist. She works in other media as well. Please, please visit her Web site to see all the creative things she does with glass--just sand, but fired with the white hot passion of a visionary. Her work touches me way down deep.
I'm looking forward to visiting her studio/compound. I hear she is as phenomenal a woman as she is an artist...
Rejina, I hope you don't mind me uploading your pics. Your work is too good not to be shared.
