Tim was trained in traditional drawing and painting at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Ca and spent the first 7 years of his career as a figurative oil painter and muralist. He discovered stained glass and specifically glass painting on a tour of The Judson Studios in Los Angeles in 2003 and was immediately hooked. Carey is now the creative director at Judson Studios, working with technology to develop efficiencies within the traditional system, as well as exploring contemporary glass techniques and methods. Tim recently completed a 3400 square foot fused glass window for the Church of the Resurrection in Leawood Kansas. After designing the piece in 2014 and realizing it couldn’t be done solely with traditional methods, Carey sought out Narcissus Quagliata and his “painting with light” fusing technique. Together they designed a custom fabrication process, and completed the piece in February of this year.
