Marlene Zullig
Featured Artist for December

Marlene Zullig is a local stained glass and jewelry artist.  Marlene can't rememvber a time in her life when she wasn't creating art.  She started with watercolors and oil, but it wasn't until she was introduced to the art of stained glass and metal crafting while living and working in Switzewrland that a light started to burn brightly within her.

Inspired by the beauty of Switzewrland, Marlene began her long career creating beautiful glass art through courses she took abroad.  She continued to push the limts of glass art through additional courses and study later in both New Jersey and New York.  Along the way, Marlene combined a 25-year career in teaching gifted education and media education with an active career in art.  She holds a B. S. degree in Education (summa cum laude), an . M.L.S. degree, and Certification in Teaching Gifted Education.  

Marlene and her family hold dual Swiss/U. S. citizenship and enjoy big family reunions in the Swiss Alps where she gathers her old world inspiration.  Her award-winning work is an eclectic mix of functional art--lamps, mosaic mirrors, vessels, jewelry--and one-of-a-kind stained glass windows, panels, fused glass, and sterling silver pieces.  She believes that glass art is tactile and should be touched and enjoyed.  Her work reflects a sense of eminent care and attention to detail from the hand-cut, high quality stained glass that she uses to create her art to the handmade frames that she makes to fit many of her custom pieces.  Her work graces homes and businesses both here and abroad.

Marlene is a member of the St. Augustine Art Association, The Art League of Daytona Beach, a board member of AGOSA, President of the P.A.St.A. Fine Art Gallery, and Riverside Fine Art Gallery, Daytona Beach.

Her show's opening coincides with the First Friday Art Walk on Decemer 7, 2018, from 5 to 9 p.m. at the P.A.St.A. Art Gallery, 214 Charlotte Street.  Refreshments served.  Always free.
