I started working in glass in 2010 after retiring from teaching. In 2018 I was awarded a 1st class Honours degree in Architectural Glass Arts and since then have continued to explore the medium in my small home studio. I have completed private commissions, taken part in local exhibitions and sales and have conducted numerous workshop sessions and Open Studios events. Still learning, still experimenting, still sharing.

Fusing is my main focus, recently combined with more inventive ways of slumping to give flat glass a more three dimensional aspect. I’m also enjoying experimenting with frit designs so that I can work with thinner glass and create more delicate objects.
