I'm a British artist, and graduated from
Loughborough College of Art and Design with a BA Hons in Silversmithing &
Jewellery in 1989, followed by a PGCE from Homerton College, Cambridge University. I taught art and was head of year at an East London secondary school before moving to live
for more than a decade overseas in Kenya, Thailand and Singapore. During
that time I worked for various NGO's, latterly as an art gallery
curator - and had three children.
In 2006 I took a workshop in glass at Hoglund Glass in New Zealand, with Micah Lamar. Having always created, I found the 'the one', nothing is quite like hot glass. I had solo exhibitions, home studios, taught workshops, and was an artist in residence while living in Bangkok and Singapore.
Returning to Suffolk in 2010 (my art foundation was in Ipswich) I joined Suffolk Open Studios and became a selected member of The Suffolk Craft Society. My current studio is a re-purposed barn in Earl Soham, where I create, teach, exhibit and sell my work.
