Kristin Dieng is a fine mosaic artist, specializing in stained glass-on-glass artwork. She chooses to work in stained glass, highlighting the interaction between glass and light and the ways in which they dance together when illuminated. Kristin's creative motivation comes from her desire to respond positively to a chronic illness. For her, creating art provides an opportunity for finding purpose and enjoyment in life, and this enjoyment shines through her use of bright, colorful designs. Kristin specializes in landscapes, trees and flowers, as well as other designs involving nature; she also enjoys creating complex geometric patterns. All of her designs are created with hand-cut stained glass pieces, and Kristin often uses semi-precious gemstones, such as agates, geode slices and gems, in her designs to create additional points of interest.
