Rankin lives and works from her home in Apsley, Ontario. Rankin graduated from Sheridan College in 1989. She has studied glass at Pilchuck Glass School on the west coast, Haystack School of Craft on the east coast and Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. In her 20 year career as a glass artist Rankin has drawn her inspiration from the landscape in which she lives. As an avid gardener she continues to explore the idea of garden through her vessel and sculptural works and is well know for her vibrant floral vessels. Rankin examines how glass has been used historically and transitions form and style with a contemporary feel.
