I hand-create glass art inspired by my expeditions to remote wild nature using glass and unexpected techniques.
I am passionate about being in extreme wildernesses - especially oceans and ocean life, mountains and ice. I am fortunate to have sailed, dived, kayaked and swam with majestic whales and sharks in remote locations including Antarctica, the Arctic and the Galapagos.
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. My making process can be dramatic and is part of my overall enjoyment. I enjoy combining my adventure travel and glass making passions to create beauty.
