Having trained in printmaking and illustration (at Winchester School of Art) I have spent my career in various areas of the arts world, painting and printing for both the fine and commercial art sectors.
When I attended a local stained glass workshop day my life changed and I was hooked!
I have always used bright colours and the influences of visits to the south of France, seeing the works of artists including Matisse, Dufy and Chagall have been important in my work.
So how could I not enjoy stained glass with its never ending variety of colours and textures? To me choosing glass can be likened to being in a sweet shop, all so tempting.
I believe that the joy of working is in the constant discovery of new techniques and ways to portray ideas so I feel it is important to keep playing and enjoying what I do.
