I studied three dimensional design at Berkshire College of Art & Design and after a career in commercial design returned to my love of kiln formed glass
My interest started with stained glass and has spread into fused. I pride myself on original work and aim for the highest standards.
I take great delight in commission work.
As an artist working in stained glass I aim to create works exploring the dynamic and expressive qualities of light and shade, texture and pattern.
My experience as a conservator has led me to the experimental use of paints and stains that enable me to make allusions to meteorological and geographical phenomena.
