I'm a British artist and I graduated from
Loughborough College of Art and Design with a BA Hons in Silversmithing &
Jewellery in 1989. I went on to work very happily as an art teacher and
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, taught by Micah Lamar. Having always created (in any media to hand) I found the 'the one', nothing is quite like hot glass. I went on to have solo exhibitions, home studios, I 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. In 2014 I moved from my home studio in Framlingham, to a re-purposed barn in nearby Earl Soham, where I create, teach, exhibit and sell my work.
