I became interested in glass and the history of glass in 1972. I started glassblowing on my arts degree foundation course in Sheffield in 1977. I graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Glass from Stourbridge College of Technology and Art in 1982, where in my final year I combined centrifuged and pressed glass. I attended The Glass Centre in Brierley Hill, 1982/83 before working at WSCAD 1983/84. I had a break from glassblowing for 36 years, when I worked in the voluntary sector, and moved to Liverpool in 1994

I am a glassblower, beekeeper and conservationist, recently I have combined my interests by infusing the honey from my native Welsh Black bees into my glass. I started glassblowing again in 2019 and in 2020 set up my Studio, Liverpool Bay Hotshop, in the Northern Lights, in the heart of Liverpool’s cultural quarter, the Baltic Triangle.
