1977-80 - BA Hons in Fine Art1994-96 - Post Graduate Diploma in Stained Glass, Central St Martins, London1996-97 - Fellowship for 1-yr study in glass at CSM. For the past twenty years I have developed my glass making practice to include decorative free-standing glass pieces using fusing/slumping techniques.

Having originally trained as a painter, I started making ‘pictures in glass’, turning them into bowls, plates or free-standing pieces. Using fusing and slumping techniques I also create colourful sculptures which are set into stands
made of wood or wrought iron. I have also been exploring screen printing images onto the glass.
