Madonna Phillip's is a glass and mixed media artist who lives and works in North Carolina. Her original art technique in glass and mixed media developed after experimentation and studying with a master stained glass painter. Phillip's is inspired by the qualities of glass and it’s relationship to design, architecture, and science as well as the connections between art and design.
Phillip's starting point is usually collage from found materials. These materials are layered and painted. Hand cut pieces of glass are reverse painted and applied to the surface. Around each piece of glass she pours a clear medium to fuse the piece together. The result is a shimmering surface with a constantly changing reflection as the viewer passes by.
Phillip's work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and is held in private and public collections including actress Carol Burnett and Reynolds Price.
