About the Artist
Indie Luria Goldwaser is a graduate of SUNY Buffalo, majoring in Psychology and Art. She continued her studies at Pratt Institute, receiving a Masters Degree in Art Therapy. Teaching Creative Problem Solving in the industrial setting led to her own challenging and artistic struggles. She began dabbling in stained glass one summer in the mid 70's, and has never put it down since. Although detouring through oils, mixed media, and sculpture, she has always come back to stained glass, and continues to evolve in this genre.
In the early 1980's, Indie's work was mainly abstract, counting on the beautiful textures and colors of the glass to dictate the design. She exhibited in several galleries in New York City, and began to explore the idea of stained glass in window displays of department stores. Although interest was generated, life's circumstances postponed her commercial art endeavors.
A decade later, she began painting, and won placement in a national juried art show. Indie explored mixed media projects, as well as painting, but always gravitated back to stained glass.
Her art work evolved from abstract to expressionistic to realistic; from working with large pieces to piecing together small tiles; from lead came to foil to grouting ... always exploring the boundaries of this powerful medium.
She lives in northern New Jersey with her husband, Alberto, and their three sons.
