Hetty Estes is a Dutch born artist raised in Richardson, Texas after immigrating to the United States.
She developed a love of color and light at a very young age, beginning with the St. Jan Cathedral (circa 1100) in her hometown in ‘S-Hertogenbosch, as a child.
She studied art throughout her school years in the Richardson School District, and later traveled extensively studying the architecture & stained glass windows of European Cathedrals.
Traveling throughout Europe, Great Britain, Canada, & the United States, allowed her to view some of the great windows of the world, always drawn to the beautiful balance of color and light.
Hetty has transformed this fascination of colorful glass into an array of artwork ranging from stained glass windows, to Dichroic and fused functional art and jewelry.
She has a 20-year history of designing stained glass windows & room sized painted murals.
Hetty holds an accredited Fine Arts Degree in Interior Design with a minor in Art History from the University of North Texas.
