Viewing Shayla Maddox's paintings feel similar to gazing upon stained glass windows, and just like stained glass, light is integral to her textured work. All of her paintings, including 'Looking Up At Night', above, come alive and change expression with the light, and she explains

' ... seeing how different lighting drastically enhances the color of the painting is intrinsic for me in the process of creating it.'

Shayla told us her mother was a stained glass artist, and recently Shayla began using glass on some pieces, sprinkled on certain areas to add additional texture, sparkle and glimmer. To view more of her work, visit Shayla Maddox's blog and Etsy.
