I am currently working on a collection exploring the Beauty and Fragility of Nature
Perfectly depicted in the fragility of the fine glass techniques used here to create these delicate, yet durable pieces.
I am a glass artist, mainly self taught with the help of a few good books and a handful of amazing artists. Mikyoung Jung, Silvia Levenson, Rudi Gritsch, and Karl Harron . They kindly share their knowledge teaching masterclasses around the world. Go on, have a peek at their work, they all have different ways of working with glass.
A good word when working with glass is focus. I so often loose myself when forming ideas for a new piece. Making sample after sample until I can capture the feeling attached to my idea into the glass in front of me. This repetitiveness calms my mind, slowly reduceing the vast noise of an idea into a simple beautiful note.
My long time love of gardening and passion for fabrics are huge influencers of my work. I think you will spot these as you visually wander through my galleries.
My roots are in Lancashire, I ventured to the middle east for several years and have now happily settled with my husband in Oxfordshire. Here I have a studio in Marcham, an expanding village managing to keep a valuable community spirit.
