I have always enjoyed being creative so, when an accident meant I was unable to continue with my job, I decided to go back to doing what I loved. A part time course in Art and Design led, unexpectedly, to a 3 year degree in Contemporary Decorative Crafts at the University of Lincoln. This involved some very late hours, juggling Course work with looking after my 2 children, but I really enjoyed the creative process.
I was delighted to graduate with a BA 1st Class Honors specialising in glass and that, plus a subsequent commission by the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts, gave me the confidence to set up my own workshop.
I now work from a little, old outhouse in my back garden which is not very comfortable and often rather cold - but it's just big enough for me, my imagination and my trusty kiln.
One of my pieces ' Hidden Treasure' was chosen as 'Highly commended'
in The Glass Prize 2016 UK
