About me

I am based in Brighton and take much of my inspiration from the surrounding environment: the city, the sea, the South Downs. All these locations reflect, capture and influence the quality of light in different ways and provide interesting starting points for glass work. Observation of the changing nature of light, and thus colour, transparency and texture, is a major theme in my work and linked to my general interest in other ‘changes’ that influence and shape our lives.

I work with a wide range of stained glass and kiln formed techniques, such as leading, copper foiling, fusing, impressions and inclusions, sandblasting, screen printing, acid etching and painting. I enjoy exploring and combining these processes in different ways to make handcrafted, unique windows, screens, tiles, bowls and artworks for domestic and architectural locations.

The cost of any commission depends on the complexity of the design, size of the piece, type of glass and the techniques used, and so the commission process always begins with a meeting, free of charge, to discuss the location, any initial design ideas, possible techniques and costs.
