Fused glass and textile artist

 

    About me   

Many years ago I trained at art college in London as a graphic designer, drifting into other convenient jobs as my family grew up, but am now returning to my artistic roots alongside my day job.

Starting with a 2 hour course on using a microwave kiln a spark was lit (metaphorically speaking … I didn’t really set fire to  anything!). On a bit of a whim I bought a larger kiln, lots of glass and it has  grown to something of an obsession. I'm even learning how to do lampworking too in a  tin shed at the bottom of the garden.

When covid allows I attend local craft fairs in Hertfordshire and surrounding counties and sell through this new sparkly shop online, my facebook page and a couple of local shops, Flowers by Catherine in Wheathampstead and Ayletts Nursery.

I am happy to work to commission and welcome a challenge, within reason!

 

 

 

I particularly enjoy creating birds and creatures as well as landscapes and floral scenes but have  created many random items!

George the goose

George is where my art at home journey began.    I have been drawing him for about 20 years now and he has also been made in glass and felt.   He even has his own facebook page and following.
