As an artisan I like to create visually elegant and original glass designs. After many years working in print, I began applying my design strengths to the glass medium, apprenticing for two years alongside an established stained glass professional. Here I assisted with original works, custom commissions and restoration projects in both lead and copper foil.

Setting up my own studio in 2010­­ has enabled me to have the freedom to continue to explore and refine my individual style. Working largely on private commissions for windows and artwork, I enjoy designing and producing pieces that balance beauty and functionality. The natural environment strongly influences my work, and I am constantly experimenting with new techniques and combining glass with recycled materials.

The endless versatility of design that can be found in everyday life is inspiring. Perhaps my work will encourage you to take notice of the light and the line.
