I am a glass artist working in kiln-formed or ‘warm’ glass in my studio in the north-west corner of the Wirral peninsula.

My process involves layering sheet glass and glass powders and firing them in my kiln to create a range of beautifully tactile semi-abstract glass wall panels and sculptural objects.

Living where I do my work is inevitably influenced by our coastal landscape. However, rather than straightforward depictions, I focus on interpreting the textures and colours – both natural and manmade – found within the landscape to evoke a sense of the atmosphere of a place. I have always been fascinated by the oft overlooked textures all around us, from rusting metal to weathered stone and decaying plaster, from peeling paint to the cracking bark on the logs in our woodpile – and it is these that find their way into my work.

After a career in IT, in 2013 I completed a degree in Applied Arts at Glyndwr University where I specialised in glass, and have been working with glass ever since. I regularly exhibit both locally and further afield.

Away from the studio I am a co-founder of the LAKE gallery in West Kirby, an active member of the small team which coordinates the popular annual Wirral Open Studio Tour, and a member of the Contemporary Glass Society.
