My work is based around the experience of living in East Yorkshire, very close to the sea . The colours, textures and sensual properties of the shore and surrounding environment are portrayed in mixed media pieces. Translucent kiln formed glass reflects the coastal light.
I trained as a fine artist, painting in ceramics, and have taught art ceramics and 3D for 30 years. I have just completed an MA in glass at the university of Wolverhampton and I have my own studio at home.
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 started my degree two years ago. I am studying 3D Contemporary Craft and have been enticed for the last year by working with glass.
