Meet Marla Montgomery
I was born in Central Washington State and lived there for 20yrs. I then moved to Portland, Oregon. I owned and worked in my Day Spa for 47yrs., then retired to Mt. Dora, Florida. I started my first couple years of retirement taking art classes. That’s
when Kiln Formed Glass grabbed me and wouldn’t let go. Having been a “colorist” in hairdressing for so many years, has turned out to be very helpful when working with glass.
I’m often surprised if someone likes a piece of my art. I am my worst critic. I think what brings me the most pleasure is when I’m commissioned to do a piece of art and then see it in their home. My studio is my sanctuary. My art is a direct reflection of the joy it brings to me.
