I am fascinated by light and colour.
I obtained a first class degree in photography a few years ago, enjoying the quiet creativity of the darkroom, where the results were handmade and unique.
I have found a similar passion when working with glass. It can be frustrating, the results are not always predicable, but eventually the ideas come together and the results can be surprising and beautiful.

I finished my degree in photography a few years ago. I really enjoyed the quiet excitement of printing in the darkroom, the possibilities for experimentation, and each print was unique.
I have now found another medium which gives me the same pleasure and element of surprise on opening the kiln; the results are not always predictable, but invariably beautiful, glass has a magical and liquid quality.
