Hello and thank you for your interest in my work! I was born and raised in Huntington Beach, CA. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Apparel Design and Merchandising from San Francisco State University. Upon moving to Los Angeles, I worked as a wardrobe stylist in the entertainment industry for several years until I became eager to pursue other interests. I returned to school to complete a program in Jewelry Design. During my studies, I discovered a passion for working with stained glass, and this is how I spend most of my time now. I am based in Pasadena CA, where all of my pieces are designed and handmade with love by yours truly.
When I’m not in my studio, I enjoy doting over my cats, Mia and Frankie, playing soccer, cooking and eating ice cream.
If you'd like to learn more about me and my glass shenanigans, check out my studio visit from West Elm on their blog, Front + Main by clicking here: Front + Main: In The Studio with Janel Foo Glassworks.
I was also featured in the LA times! Check it out here: Makers: For stained glass artist Janel Foo, it’s all about the color
