Discovery Glass
Glass Artist

I originally studied printed textile design and after completing a P.G.C.E. I taught Art & Design for a number of years. Consequently I discovered glass and opened my studio, Discovery Glass in County Down in 1990. My work has developed from solely "tiffany" style glass to kiln-formed, fused and stained glass.My creations are very varied, from jewellery to windows and I specialise in commissioned pieces. I offer tuition to small groups of students.
