I design and create unique sculptures, vessels and wearable art by torching Murano glass in an intense flame. This ancient craft is called lampwork or flamework. I have been working mainly in glass for the last ten years while continuing to draw and paint.
I am inspired by people, places, objects, artefacts and stories. My glass tells stories, celebrates colour, pattern, light and the beauty of the small.
