About me

 
         
         
  Christmas show at Kensington   I have been living and working in Somerset since 1987, encompassing traditional and contemporary work in Stained glass.

I first learnt the craft whilst living in Dublin, Ireland and then went on to do a residential course with Joseph Nuttgens in Buckinghamshire.  Sometime after that, I went and studied glass painting at a studio in Sienna, Italy.

Whilst having undertaken a wide variety of windows, doors and restoration work, I also love creating smaller decorative items, particularly jewelled boxes.

Semi precious stones, agates, shells and old jewellery are all incorporated into the boxes as well as many of them having Murano glass beaded feet. The design and ‘theme’ of the individual box is often decided by what item I decide to use.

Inspirations for the designs are taken from museum visits, historic sewing patterns, art books and lots of ‘whimsy’ thrown in for good measure!

Particular requests for a personal box given as a gift, say, for an anniversary present is often designed around the personality of the intended person.

All of the boxes are uniquely individual.

I have also done a limited amount of teaching work with young people in local schools, creating stained glass mosaic work. This has been most rewarding.

In closing, there is not too much I wouldn't turn my hand to in glass work. So, I am always open to suggestions!
