From a very young age I have known of glass as an artistic medium, ever since my parents (E+M Glass) opened the studio I grew up in, back in 1987. Even with this familiarity with hot-glass it wasn't until I went to Sunderland University that I began to experiment and really explore it's properties. Originally studying Fine Art it later seemed inevitable that I would transfer to the BA Glass and Ceramics course, from which I graduated from with honours in 2010 and was awarded the Charles Bray award for Glass Excellence
I have mostly been demonstrating around the country, taking my work out to display and sell at major craft, art and country fairs. My most recent work has been developing different stemware and interior ranges at E&M glass.
