I hand-create art inspired by my encounters in remote wild nature using glass and dramatic techniques.
I have a passion for being in extreme wildernesses - especially sailing or diving in remote oceans with ocean life, mountains and ice.
These big expanses give me a sense of adventure and exhilaration and being there is a real privilege. Vast, rugged landscapes make me feel very small but connected with this world. I am concerned about their fragile future and want to raise awareness so others care and protect them too.
Glassblowing is the hardest thing I have ever done! It’s challenging, expensive, addictive and satisfying. I use unexpected techniques in my making process which is part of my overall enjoyment.
I am self-taught through hiring studios and the owner for one-to-one tuition. I first blew glass in 2012 and mid-2019 focused on it fully but only have just over 100 days under my belt. In 2023 I opened my own studio in South Buckinghamshire.
In 2023 I appeared in the BBC TV series Make It At Market –series 1 episode 9 - repeated several times on BBC1 and BBC2 as well as on BBC iPlayer and BritBox.
