I have always made ‘things’, even as a little girl. I am a qualified Interior Designer, so creativity is definitely in my blood.
I love light, colour and form, so glass was a natural path for me to explore. I adore the wonderful properties it has in relation to light and colour. I happened upon flame working while surfing the Internet and was fascinated. I read all I could find on it, took a class to make sure it was all that I thought it would be and I haven't looked back.
Each bead I make is unique and formed from the finest Murano glass from Italy, with specialist glasses from the USA. I use the bead as a canvass to draw pictures while in the flame, utilising its fluidity to create loose watercolour or graphic style images. I also enjoy playing with the fluid nature of molten glass by creating hollow forms in varying organic shapes. My passion is to create and experiment. I seldom sit at my torch with a firm plan of what I am going to do. I let the glass and the moment lead me in my creation.
I also make bespoke bails and metal elements for my glass work.
