My current work mainly utilises the colours and textures of glass fusing materials and techniques as a fine art medium, an intuitive and painterly response to an image or drawing, further enhanced by the surprises created during the glass firing process. Favourite inspirational locations of mine are Cornwall and the South Downs.
Fundamental to this process are my drawings in charcoal and pastel, which can provide the inspiration and starting point for my glass work, or become pieces of art in their own right.
Printmaking also plays a part in my work, particularly drypoint etching, lino block and woodcuts.
I have a background in Art and Design including a BA (Hons) Design degree, with a career working in Design and then teaching Textiles and Art.
I now run the Artworks studio in Aldsworth, which provides a range of creative classes and workshops.
