I create fused glass wall art, sculpture, jewellery & gifts from my home studio. I also run fusing workshops, take commissions & sell through Nucleus Arts

I've always been a creative person, but my life before glass was spent in engineering and HR/Training. In 2007 I taught myself to make small glass cabochons for jewellery and, with a lot of experimentation, trial and error, plenty of research and reading, some masterclasses and 3 more kilns, I can safely say I have developed  my own style and am pleased to call myself a glass artist! 

With a background in engineering, I find the technical aspects of hot glass work very rewarding; feeding my inquisitive nature and satisfying the 'what if...?' I'm a bit of a magpie for tools and love all the aspects of physically making something by hand (and kiln) - takes me back to my days as an apprentice engineer!

Another path on my glass journey has been to share my skills by delivering training sessions for a local arts organisation and running fusing classes in my studio - so even my HR training didn't go to waste - funny how everything comes full circle in the end!
