Having studied Art and Design at University, I have continued to follow my passion for creating and learning throughout my career. A home, family and career as a teacher and education adviser followed, though I maintained my love of all things creative, teaching and making for more than 35 years.
Now my family have grown up, I find I now have the time and space to revisit these skills and get creative once more with colour, pattern and texture a passion and inspiration for my work.
I am also pleased to be able to combine my experience as a teacher with my creative passion and offer 1 to 1, group and party workshops and tuition. If it is something bespoke you are after to add personal style and flair to your home or that of a loved one, I'd be happy to help.
My creative portfolio includes a range of beautiful, useful things that I love myself, to use day-to day and to gift to others. Each piece is handmade by fusing layers of clear glass, glass chips, glass paints and a sprinkling of coloured glass frit to create added texture and interest. This is then then fired in my home studio kiln to give a smooth finish.
A selection of my items can be seen below. The full range can be regularly seen at Salisbury Arts Scene's outdoor events.
