Artist Statement

I specialise in cast and fused glass, often combining it with other materials such as slate,
wood and clay as I enjoy the contrasts of their surface textures, such as fragility ,malleability, warm wood or cool slate.

My work is based on the glimpsed moments and hidden traces in the natural world -
such as the striations of rocks or the flash of a dragonfly, a resting butterfly and floating petals. I use these in wall art and unique jewellery. I am now working in pate de verre, and grinding my own Frits.

I have exhibited widely and carried out several community workshops and commissions
(including mosaics). and also worked as an art adviser, moderator and teacher.

I welcome visitors to my studio and my work can also be seen in several galleries.

I am available for teaching, workshops, commissions and jewellery parties.
