Glass and Textile Artist
I moved to Cornwall 10 years ago after many years working in Norfolk designing for industry. Having worked with many materials in the past, I found a love of glass and Cornwall.
I love to work big when I can. Using lead came and cement to assemble the glass into panels for doors and windows. For my smaller panels I normally use the Tiffany method (copper foiled and soldered).
I find glass is such a wonderful material that can be used in to many different ways. At present I am exploring painting and printing using traditional oxides, enamels, silver stain and lustre, as well as etching, sandblasting and wire to enhance my panels. I have also started to use fused and kiln formed glass as the canvasses for my painting.
My work is ever evolving as I fine different ways of making a mark or an impression on glass. I never get tired of seeing how glass plays with light and manipulating it to do so.
