Toasted GlassToasted Glass came about as an outlet for her borderline obsession with painting on glass, which began almost 20 years ago, when she stumbled across employment at an amazing little shop in Fulham that sold all kinds of cool and quirky stuff. Monique soon discovered she had a talent for painting and her painted glass outsold everything else. Toasted Glass has its own website and also appears on Folksy and Etsy.  Most of Monique’s designs are inspired by nature and her work features flamingos, peacocks, hummingbirds, stags and foxes as well as a lot of flowers, butterflies and bees.
