Melanie (Lea) Dawson
Lea’s Loft Art Studio has been my dream for as long as I can remember. However, the Lord’s plans took me via a 20 year detour as an accountant in the corporate world until it was time to turn my dream into reality. Everyone knows me as Melanie, but I was christened with my Grandmother’s names of which Lea is the first, hence the name of my studio and the signature on my art.
By the grace of God I survived breast cancer in 2015 and with the support of my wonderful husband Nic, I was able to start my own art studio at the end of 2016. My husband and I have always been fascinated by the properties of glass, which lead to the decision for me to learn the art of glass fusing.
The possibilities of Fused glass art are endless and I can help you to learn a variety of amazing techniques! Welcome to the fun reality of my dream!
