After a career working with children and in the last ten years hearing impaired pupils in a secondary school I decided to embark on furthering my own education and studied 3D Contemporary Craft Degree in which I gained a 1st Class Honors in 2014. I have since completed a Skills Knowledge Enhancement course and will embark on my teacher training in September 2015. I in my spare time continue to experiment with my glass sculptures.
I work with recycled/ reclaimed glass pushing the envelope of creativity challenging myself with the multiple technical issues that occur. I enjoy the experimentation and exploration in discovering the new possibilities of working with glass of different co-efficiency. Living in God's own county, Yorkshire, I love trying to replicate the textures and undulations of the landscape. My work often incorporates other found materials, which adds to the textures and colours of the piece.
