Fairy tales and the creatures and characters that inhabit them, are a source of inspiration for me in my glass work. They are moral tales of opposites, containing good and bad, and light and dark. They often serve as warnings against the unknown, e.g. the dark forest or the big bad wolf. Through my painted glass pieces I wish to journey to this dark unknown and cast a light on the beauty I see there.

Wolves and Little Red Riding Hood feature a lot in my work currently. I make small copper-foiled panels of hand-painted kiln-fired glass and coloured glass pieces. Some are light-catchers and can be hung in a window while others are opaque glass pieces that are best displayed against a wall.
