I am studying Architectural glass at UWTSD Swansea, continuing to the second year in September (2014). I have a workshop at home where I enjoy fusing and casting. This year I have been painting and leading and next year hope to try new technologies like water-jet cutting.

Details about work or recent projects

Some themes are set by my course tutors (Dylan Thomas Centenary, WW1 Memorial etc.) or by friends who have commissioned work, but when working on my own I explore ideas associated with identity and communication.
I have experimented with stencils and frit this year but am turning more to paint recently.
