The Designer - Wincilla Edwards
Wow! What a journey this has been. I'm an island girl, born an raised in the tropical caribbean twin island state of Antigua & Barbuda. I migrated to New York well over a decade ago, changed my career from a Microsoft Systems Engineer, to a Freelance Artist, so that I could help my two young boys acclimate to a new culture and a new world.
I've always been passionate about art, as a young girl I remember taking my grandmother's antiques chairs, and old pitchers in her back yard to create still life drawings. In high school when my girlfriends were taking home economic classes I was drawing fruits and veggies on a plate in art class. In 2005 I had the awesome privilege to be trained in a method of painting which taught me how to blend, shade, and highlight all in one stroke. Ever since I have not been able to put my brushes down. I literally paint on everything, Every gift I gave that year was a hand painted gift. I soon started filling orders for friends to give as wedding and other special occasion gifts.
Today, I have developed my own style of painting on glassware, and my love for fashion and beauty have lead me headlong into fashion illustration, painting all the fun fashionable things we girls love. For the last five years I've even had the pleasure of working with top brand clients, Saks Fifth Ave and Nordstrom's entire northeastern stores and more recently Harper BAZAAR, Viktor & Rolf, and Lord & Taylor.
My hand painted glasses are designed around a person's story. Who you are at the core - are you romantic? Adventurous? Where did you and your fiancee` have your first date, or shared your first kiss? Whats you favorite vacation spot? What you do in your leisure time? You get the idea, ITS ALL ABOUT YOU. I love to capture who you are, and have it reflected in custom glassware, as you celebrate one of life's special moments - weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and more. I look forward to celebrating YOU!
