Maureen Storey is the owner and glass artist of storeyweaver designs in glass and is a Virginia Juried Artisan in fused glass of the Artisans Center of Virginia (ACV).
“Science is art and art is science. Both are my passion. My first career as a PhD nutrition scientist spanned 40 years and I held executive-level positions in the food industry, academia and trade associations. During this time, I traveled frequently within the United States and internationally. But in my spare time, I needed an outlet for my creative energy, and discovered glass art.
Now, I am experiencing an encore career as a glass artist. In creating fused glass and stained-glass artwork, I enjoy the freedom to express myself by creating beautiful, colorful works of art.
I create my glass art to share and reflect emotion, movement, and my interpretation of the world around me. My deep vessels, bowls and plates stand alone as works of art, yet each one is functional. For commissioned commemorative pieces, I work closely with clients to create a work of art that truly tells their story and conveys their feelings.”
Maureen’s artwork is currently on display at The Loft Gallery in Occoquan, VA; Middle Street Gallery, Washington, VA; and the Artists in Middleburg (AiM), Middleburg, VA. In 2021, Maureen’s deep vessel titled Tapestry, was awarded the first Weisser Glass Studio prize for Kiln Glass Exploration in the Creative Craft Council’s 2021 exhibit held at the Strathmore Mansion in Rockville, MD. Other juried shows have included the National Capital Art Glass Guild’s (NCAGG) Edge of Light and Wild Things exhibits and the Clarke County Historical Society’s Art at the Mill, Millwood, VA.
Maureen is a member of the Middle Street Gallery, Loft Gallery, Artists in Middleburg, NCAGG and the ACV. She is Vice President of the Board of Directors for AiM and was 2019 President of the NCAGG.
