I am a glass artist and teacher based at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, my practice is divided into a number of areas.
I design and make stained glass windows as well as restoring older stained glass windows back to their original condition. I teach weekly stained glass classes and I also run stained glass and fused glass (kiln formed glass) one day workshops.
I also design and make my own fused glass art using a combination of techniques such as encapsulation, screen-printing and decals. I am currently working on pieces for the garden using a combination of driftwood, traditional stained glass and more modern fused glass techniques.
My work is inspired by the power of words and I have previously created a collection of fused glass work based around a literary theme; this collection includes ‘Alice in Wonderland’ coasters and jewellery with famous literary quotes.
