I was born in Hackensack, New Jersey in the early 80's. Moved to Lansdale, Pennsylvania in the early 90's. Most of my inspiration comes from the pop culture of those two eras. Horror/ fantasy/ and action movies were my go to for ideas, as well as various Saturday morning cartoons of the time. Sometime in the 90's I got into reading comics. My favorite titles were X-Men, Spider-Man, Spawn, and the Maxx. The best way I can describe my style is what would happen if you took all the sugar fueled and sometimes nightmarish entertainment and images your average person in their 30's grew up with, threw it all in a blender, and left the lid off.

Melinda Szczepanski is a local stained glass artist who works in both leaded and foil techniques. She is a lifelong resident of Lansdale.
Sometimes a simple piece of glass, whether it’s the color or the texture, is enough to inspire an entire project.
Melinda especially enjoys rescuing old, discarded window sashes and bringing them back to life to use as frames for her work.
