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 - not very fancy and often rather cold - but 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 which is run by Warm Glass UK each year to inspire innovation in kiln formed glass and encourage Glass Artists throughout the world to share their work and express their passion.
