I hope there is something here that is of interest to you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to enquire about commissions, I'd love to hear from you.
Having studied Art and Design at University, I have continued to follow my passion for creating and learning throughout my career. A home, family and career as a teacher and education adviser followed, though I maintained my love of all things creative, teaching and making for more than 35 years.
Now my family have grown up, I find I have the time and space to revisit these skills and get creative once more with colour, pattern and texture a passion and inspiration for my glass work.
My creative portfolio includes a range of beautiful, useful things that I love myself, to use day-to day and to gift to others. Each piece is handmade by fusing layers of clear glass, glass chips, glass paints and a sprinkling of coloured glass frit to create added texture and interest. This is then then fired in my home studio kiln, sometimes several times over to give a smooth finish and the desired shape and texture.
I delight in being able to combine my experience as a teacher and share my creative passion through 1 to 1, group and party workshops and tuition.
Whether it is something bespoke you are after to add personal style and flair to your home or garden, a special gift for a loved one, or to come along and have a go yourself, I'd be happy to help.
