A self-taught artist, I work with clay and glass, experimenting with various materials and fusing recycled glass, building sculptures with clay and glass combined, as well as designing and creating architectural stained glass on commission.
Glass and the dance of color and light within the 3D forms inspired me to learn glassblowing. Having a back ground in traditional miniature painting and a passion for drawing, I have done a lot of experimental work in imagery on glass as well. In future, I intend to carry on working with imagery on 2D and 3D glass glass forms.
