I am an artist and part-time special needs teacher.
I create glass sculptures and works to commissions and now run relaxed and popular workshops in my home studio in Hassocks, West Sussex, giving people the opportunity to spend a day or half day learning a new skill and creating their own piece of glass art.
Since completing a BA Hons in Visual Arts specializing in ceramic sculptures designed for the garden and qualifying as a teacher, I have continued to create artwork inspired by nature.
For many years I created garden mosaics, accepting commissions as well as designing and selling my own pieces. My love of mosaics naturally evolved into working with coloured and textured glass and this has now become my passion.
Once I had mastered the craft of creating leaded stained glass windows, I was keen to use these skills to make pieces that would work beautifully outside. My designs are inspired by my love of nature, plants and my love of colour. . I love creating contemporary and new botanical designs from glass. I like to combine working with coloured glass and being surrounded by nature, both in my garden and further afield. This has led me to create unique glass garden art and bring me to where I now am. I feel very lucky to live and work in the Sussex South Downs.
