meet the artist             back to patrice’s work       


patrice carbaugh grew up with a love of nature and has always been

fascinated by glass and its magical properties.  while living in montana

she bought a kiln and started teaching herself to work with fused glass

experimenting with texture, light and the alchemy of combining glass with

precious metals to see what develops.  her inspiration comes from the

natural world and the many places she has lived and visited.  she spent

20 years working with wildlife at the los angeles zoo and, just for fun,

went horse trekking in kenya, Ireland and various parts of the united states. 

to fulfill her commitment to wildlife she moved to massachusetts where

she earned an undergraduate degree, then to st. georges university in

grenada and the university of edinburgh in scotland to earn her

doctorate of veterinary medicine.  recently, she studied in florida to

add animal acupuncture to her list of skills.  patrice now resides in

new mexico with her well-traveled cats, gabriel and eli, where she

continues her life purpose to heal, create, and offer the world her special

gifts captured in glass.
