My work investigates image and spatial effect, implementing and developing the use of colour, scale and form relevant to the specific nature or requirements demanded by particular spaces. Materials used include various flat and processed glasses, occasionally in combination with non-glass elements. Techniques utilised spread across use of paint, stain, enamel and gilding, screen print, airbrush, cold process and heat forming.
