After a career in book publishing and studying creative embroidery, I changed direction and studied jewellery. I had been a collector of British Studio Glass so it was a natural progression to making my own, finding fulfilment in kiln-formed glass. I am currently Chair of Just Glass.
Images from the natural and cosmic world have always been an inspiration to me as have the contrasts between matt and gloss, smooth and rough, light and dark, hard and soft. I also draw inspiration from my own life, memories of war and my work in the publishing industry whilst still keeping to my love of texture and the effect of light on glass.
