I started working in glass about 3 years ago from a background in industrial design and it has more or less taken over my life. The ''what if'' element of glass constantly engages me.
My journey through art has led me to create personal intimate pieces that speak of my concerns for the world. I use print, glass and cast components in the forming my body of work reflects the pervasive influence of technology in our lives
Contemporary decorative stained glass in bold colours with a strong graphic aesthetic, hand painted kiln-fired. Inspiration comes from the things around me - vintage children's books, wallpaper and fabric patterns, logos and trademarks, poster art and the natural world.
I work to commission and also sell small items online via Etsy and Folksy and in select shops and galleries. Currently selling through Rostra & Rooksmoor Gallery, Bath and The Stained Glass Museum, Ely
I also work as a stained glass painter on a freelance basis. Contact me if you would like to discuss a project. Examples of my work can be seen on my website at www.stainedglasswindow.info
