Now specialising in architectural glass, I originally trained in fine art, and retain these sensibilities within all areas of my current practice. I design and make architectural glass to commission for a wide variety of applications and also undertake public art commissions, often in collaboration with other artists and designers. Parallel to my commissioned work I continue my personal art practice following a creative train of ideas, making work for gallery, external and site specific locations.
I have 18 years experience in arts management and education. This includes delivering artist workshops and projects in formal and informal educational settings; community arts management; audience development consultancy; project management in art galleries and curatorial work.
I was awarded a Masters degree in Glass (Distinction) in July 2009. This MA study expanded my repertoire of techniques and skills base as well as developing my work from an intellectual and critical perspective.
