I have come to glass-making after a career in publishing as a writer and an editor.
I trained in Fine Art and stained glass originally. Later I gained an M.A. in Fine Art which benefitted my painting style and also gave me confidence in modern glass design.After working in glass at Central St.Martins, I am now using enamels and I work with kinectic glass sculpture also.
I was born in Japan and graduated from an art college in Tokyo.
I moved to UK in 1989 and discovered glass engraving. .
I took a variety of short courses and became a craft member of the Guild of Glass Engravers in 1994.
I exhibit regularly in exhibitions and have done various commissions (both private and commercial).
