Paul Messink is an award-winning artist and international instructor working in kiln-formed glass, who draws on prior drawing and painting experience to create hand-painted, multi-layered glass panels that present nature in deep dimension. While mostly self-taught, he has been fortunate to learn from artists such as Susan Taylor Glasgow, Richard LaLonde, Mark Salsbury, Annette Baron, and Don Schneider. He now teaches his own unique techniques in workshops throughout the US and internationally.
Messink has participated in numerous group shows around the country. He teaches in the US, Europe, Canada, and Mexico.
