Art and Nature Lover
Today, she is an on-board naturalist for Celebrity Cruises, educating passengers on the places and sites the cruise lines voyage to around the globe. Prior to that, upon graduating from RIT's glass BFA program, Garland was a glassblower for Corning Museum of Glass’ Hot Glass at Sea program. She traveled the world — to places such as Alaska, Australia and New Zealand — presenting hot glass demonstrations to passengers on Celebrity Cruises ships.
“As an artist, I use glass to express a passion for the natural world, as well as the need to protect it,” Garland’s website bio reads. “My work as a naturalist provides an endless stream of experiences and inspiration. I choose glass because of its limitless possibilities. I make art to celebrate and honor the beauty of nature and, I hope, open a dialogue about the societal change that is required to both save and savor our natural world.”
