Lyn Durham joined Conrad Pickel Studio in 2003 and is the head artist, designing and painting new windows for churches and other venues in essentially the same way as did the artists of the Gothic cathedrals. Lyn works in watercolor, sculpture and illustration and has been designing stained glass since 1990. Born in Compton, CA, Ms. Durham earned her MFA from University of California Berkeley.
Steven Cowan is from Birmingham, England. He left university in 2000 with a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. But, having always had a love and a flair for stained glass through his father took on a position assisting his father in the painting department at John Hardman & Co. after just one year in the field of engineering. During eight years at John Hardman & Co. Steven was able to learn all aspects of stained glass and master the, now rare, traditional skills used in creating new windows and preserving and restoring existing windows. He and his father formed a company Master Glass Artists LTD in 2009.
