“My work is primarily abstract, often abstracted through the process of drawing, painting and collaging based on observation of natural forms and landscape. I am fascinated by the qualities of this transparent, light transmitting material and its ability to uplift and transform our experiences of building interiors. I am excited to use ancient techniques in the creation of contemporary images. I work both as a colourist and in monochrome.
Working primarily with mouthblown glasses, painting, staining, acid etching and sandblasting to form site specific and free-hanging pieces, I design and make windows for public and private buildings. My work is in numerous private collections.”
