About Patricia Von Niessen
Patricia Von Niessen is a stained glass artist and native of British Columbia, Canada. She now resides in Holly, MI. She specializes in the Tiffany method of stained glass art, believing that it allows her more flexibility in design.
She began her artist career with basic instruction at Franklin Art Glass Studio in German Village, then went on to develop her own style, honing her skills in pattern making, soldering, design, glass selection and details. With each art panel she challenges herself for perfection in order to create a truly unique piece of stained glass art that you’ll fall in love with over and over again. Her greatest pleasure comes from selecting just the right glass to portray the depth, movement and mood for the completed panel.
Patti has been creating her panels since 2010 and selling stained glass art since 2014. She has won second place at Ohio State Fair for her Koi and Cherry Blossoms and was represented at 3060 Gallery in Columbus from 2018 – 2020.
In June of 2020, Patti moved to rural Michigan with her husband and was able to reconnect with nature in a small acreage just outside of Holly. Nature has always been the focus of her designs, and this new location is certainly bringing about some outstanding glasswork.
Patti is retired from her past position of Executive Director of Summer Jam West. (a Columbus local arts and music festival).
