I have been working with glass as my chosen medium for over 20 years and I am as passionate about working with it now as I was when my Journey first began.
I started my exploration of glass at the university of Wolverhampton which introduced me to the multitude of possibilities of this super cooled liquid as a creative material and also gave me the opportunity to attend a coveted scholarship at the prestigious Pilchuck glass school in Seattle, founded by World famous glass artis Dale Chihuly.
This experience fuelled my passion and imagination beyond recognition, I was in too deep to leave this challenging career path now; not that this ever crossed my mind.
Pilchuck is a true mecca for anything glass, I thought I’d died and gone to heaven, I found my happy place.
After completing my degree at Wolverhampton, I sought to expand my technical skills further, working in various UK glass Studios assisting other accomplished glass makers whilst attending a professional development course in Stourbridge, the historical heart of English glass making.
