Evelyn Wolff MD has balanced a life in the healing arts with that of being the designer at Wolff's Glass Studio in Toronto, Huntsville and Belleville, Ontario. Her unique artistry combines a finely tuned colour sensibility, with a solid apprenticeship in the European tradition of stained glass with Robert Jeckyl, through Sheridan College in Toronto. Independent studies at Ontario College of Art include three dimensional design, low relief glass casting, silk-screening, and glass painting, with Shirley Fineblit, and Allan Stein.
These skills also informed her flair for innovative design and engineering, stretching the limits of this crystalline medium, while celebrating the beauty of both her inner visions and of the natural environment she thrives in.
Evelyn’s unique, intricate jewel-like personal pieces are attuned to the client or complement architectural concepts for residential or corporate contexts. She chooses lustrous hand-blown glass imported from Europe, and from the most expressive glass America has to offer. The work is assembled by Simon Meinecke from Utterson and Harold Foster of Firefly Stained Glass in Belleville using the time consuming but visually rewarding copper-foil technique. As well she has worked in association with respected artists and artisans from Mariposa, and Du Verre Glass, Toronto, Knapp's Glass Studio, Muskoka, and with Cherished Stained Glass' master glass painter, Cheryl Goleski, from Barrie.
The radiance of the resultant art form, uplifting the viewer into the joyous dance of light and colour, is the fruit of Evelyn's continuing dedication to life.
Memberships: Artists in Stained Glass, Muskoka Arts and Crafts, and the Quinte Arts Council. She has recently become a member of Gallery 121 on 48 Bridge Street in Belleville.
