In 1997 I won the Chase Charity Award for M.A. students in Glass in the Southern Region. Since then, I have continued to develop my approach to glass, and, as well as the public works and exhibitions that I have been involved in, I have produced a large range of private commissions.
My approach to glass is contemporary and I use only the very best range of glasses appropriate to each commission.
My technical range is broad and I can incorporate blasting, etching, enamelling, plating, slumping and fusing. This breadth gives me the freedom to realize exact visual qualities required in my approach.
I enjoy working with clients to design individual pieces that suit particular architectural settings.
My personal work often has ongoing themes that concern light, energy and energy transformation. My recent themes center on the vessel shape which echoes ideas relating to “holding” and containing light.
My work has been purchased for various collections and can be found in some public places.
Most recently, (2008) Clare Hall, Cambridge commissioned a panel for the Clare Hall Gallery entrance and Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge purchased a panel for their new library foyer. (Installed 2008)
Cambridge Regional College commissioned "Passing Place" in 1997. This large work (2mtrs x2mtrs) installed in the main mall of the college
In 2003 Clare Hall, Cambridge University, purchased "Desert 1" and "Desert 2"
In 1995 Margaret Buck, Head of Central St. Martins has purchased 2 panels “Fenscape” and “Vanishing Boundaries” for the College’s Archival Collection. The Rector of the London Institute purchased a panel “Out of the Blue” for the London Institute Collection.
