I produce a constantly evolving range of decorative glass design. My current range is focused on sacred geometry and mandalas to produce work which has a kaleidoscopic op art effect.
I am based in Manchester, UK and have been working as a stained glass artist for 10 years. I design and make bespoke stained glass windows and also carry out repair and restoration work. Over the last 5 years I have developed my interest in fused glass and kiln formed pieces.
I studied at Ravensbourne, then at Leicester where I first blew glass. A lifetime later, I find I’m again working with glass. Mostly I’m fusing, sometimes to make pictures, sometimes slumping, often something else entirely. I'm exploring and learning, surprised and delighted with glass, and always finding something new.
Having made an award winning film as a student, I worked on several puppet animation projects including The Wind in the Willows, Paddington Bear, Noddy in Toyland and Portland Bill, before setting up my own production company, Cheeky films Ltd. For many years I was a part-time lecturer in animation at The Royal College of Art and a former art critic for the Daily Express. I now work full time as a mosaic artist.
I have become increasingly interested in the applied arts, particularly mosaic, which is becoming more and more popular both as an art form and as a decorative medium. I regard my mosaic work as a logical progression from animation, both of which involve building a coherent whole, displaying character and movement, from thousands of tiny elements. I am particularly inspired by the natural world and relish the challenge of capturing its organic grace in such a seemingly uncompromising medium.
