Based in south Devon I am a contemporary glass artist making decorative panels and architectural glass by commission and for exhibitions/galleries. Incorporating printing techniques, warm glass techniques, photographic images, acid etching, casting and glass painting into leaded and sculptural work.
I am also an environmental sculptor exhibiting around the UK and undertaking a wide range of public and community projects.

From 2014-2016 I was project manager of a public art and history project: the West Teignmouth project funded by the Health lottery for the Teign Heritage Centre.
