I make fused glass panels for windows, screens and lighting. I like to use texture as well as colour, so the pieces are continually changing with the viewpoint, the time of day, the seasons and the weather. I am generally inspired by nature, but am happy to be pushed out of my comfort zone too.
I am a designer and maker of hand blown and kiln formed studio glass, architectural panels and garden sculpture. My work is based around the themes of 'movement and change' and much of my inspiration comes from the Lincolnshire Wolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty where I both live and work.
