I used to write and illustrate children's books, ten years ago I changed to fusing glass. I wish I had discovered it before! It gives me immense pleasure.
Kim trained in Fashion & Textile Design at St Martin's School of Art, London and worked internationally as a fashion/textile designer. Since 1999 she has re-trained in techniques for kiln-formed glass and presently works from her 'Heart of England' studio in the former stables of Sandon Hall in Staffordshire.
It is not until we have seen the darkness that we can truly appreciate the beauty of the light.
I am an artist (www.juliabritton.co.uk) and art psychotherapist (www.thetuliptree.org.uk) based in Northamptonshire, UK. My identity as an artist is very much grounded in my training as an art psychotherapist. Each series of fused glass work is a focused exploration of emotional experiences, theoretical or philosophical concepts related to my experience of life and of art psychotherapy.
