My work brings together fine art and craft through works on paper, inimitable glass sculptures, ephemeral installations and multi-exposure photography. My love of art and colour began at an early age. I grew up in a vibrant community of artists on Lamma Island and would spend my weekends exploring the island where I developed a close connection to nature. I spent my summers travelling throughout South East Asia, America and the United Kingdom. In 2012 I took a once in a life time trip where I travelled on my own back to Hong Kong, Bali, Singapore and Thailand. During this time I created a series of watercolour works on paper. Upon returning to the UK I developed a technique of translating my two-dimensional works on paper into three-dimensional glass sculptures known as the Relief Glass Drawing technique. This labour intensive, hands on process allowed me to experiment with surface textures by carving into plaster batts and combining different glass colours for a vivid outcome that responds to the natural light by creating shadows that dance on the walls or shift their tone depending on the type of light they sit in.  Today my collections are known for their rich colour palette, dynamic lines that intertwist into one another and works that are in constant visual flux.
