I produce a constantly evolving range of decorative glass design. My current range is focused on sacred geometry and mandalas to produce work which has a kaleidoscopic op art effect.

Having made an award winning film as a student, I worked on several puppet animation projects including The Wind in the Willows, Paddington Bear, Noddy in Toyland and Portland Bill, before setting up my own production company, Cheeky films Ltd. For many years I was a part-time lecturer in animation at The Royal College of Art and a former art critic for the Daily Express. I now work full time as a mosaic artist.
I have become increasingly interested in the applied arts, particularly mosaic, which is becoming more and more popular both as an art form and as a decorative medium. I regard my mosaic work as a logical progression from animation, both of which involve building a coherent whole, displaying character and movement, from thousands of tiny elements. I am particularly inspired by the natural world and relish the challenge of capturing its organic grace in such a seemingly uncompromising medium.
