Lylah continues to experiment with different techniques in glass. Her love continues to lie in the sculptural vessels combining both vibrant color with shape.
Lylah's knowledge of beadwork was passed to her from her mother who learned while living on the Navajo reservation in Northern Arizona. The detail and time it takes to make this work is a true act of patience. The designs traditionally tell a story, integrating the lives of people in the work.
Lylah's love for sewing was handed down by her grandmother. She enjoys the play-like images and the childlike freedom that this media allows. Most of her sewn work is for children and inspired by children. This influence really shows in her work.
Lylah loves creating a conversation through her work. Her ability to work with business owners to create a logo that reflects her style as well as the business is a challenge that comes with great satisfaction once it is met.
Lylah’s most current media exploration through painting gives her more freedom for spontaneity of design and natural shapes and images. She enjoys the fluidity of the paint and the ability to drop in and allow her creativity to take organic shape without having the mechanics of the media challenge this flow.
