I’m a glass student from Northern Ireland, I am currently studying a B.A. Hon in Glass Sculpture and Architectural Glass in Scotland at Edinburgh College of Art.
I decided I to pursue the medium of glass in 2009 when I researched Andy Goldsworthy’s Ice sculptures for a 3D project and I wanted create my own but permanent, so I got cut off of glass and put them in the kiln and have been hooked ever since. As I am still studying I haven't chosen a specialism, because I like to choose the technique that suits the concept best.

Passionate about glass from a small child standing mesmerised by the colours in the stained glass windows to finding little pebbles of sea glass on the beach. My journey in working with glass started in 2009 when I happened to find a Stained Glass evening class that incorporated Fused glass. That was it - completely hooked and totally fascinated by this technique. I also work with glass in jewellery making.
