In 2008, she decided to become a glass artist professionally and established Aspen Light Glass Studio, while expanding her work to include kiln-formed glass. In 2013, Ms. Quarles first opened her glass studio in Ridgway, Colorado and has recently moved to a new studio in Rico Colorado where she now masters in glass frit and powdered glass palette knife paintings exclusively.
