A new piece of work for me always begins with walking, looking and drawing, and my ideas are shaped by the time I spend out of doors. I also get a great deal of inspiration and joy from the actual process of making, and of experimenting with a wide variety of different materials. Glass is a fascinating substance which changes with the light and the weather, giving different moods on different days.
My glass work is all kiln-formed, and I use fused glass to make sculptures for the garden and wall-mounted pieces for interiors. I also make three dimensional sculptures in cast glass and mixed materials – mostly wood and metal.
I live and have my studio in the village of Cuddington, three miles from Thame. After several years working as a painter and sculptor, I began to experiment with glass in 2000, and now work mostly to commission, producing large scale installations for homes and businesses.
