After Graduating from Sunderland University in 2007 and exhibiting and selling my work at the New Designers exhibition in London I decided to start my own glass practice where I work to commission as well as selling in a number of galleries and outlets, designing and creating:

  • Stained Glass
  • Fused and Slumped Glass works
  • Garden and Outdoor Glass Sculptures

As well as my creative practice I also deliver Glass making for schools and private clients, from stained glass panels to glass jewelry, painting glass to fused wall art. I can adapt the workshops to facilitate all ages and abilities. And can deliver them on your own premises.

Christmas especially is a good time for workshops in schools, with children of all ages and abilities we make glass Christmas decorations by painting on glass

My work has sold both locally, nationally and internationally and can be seen at the following locations:

  • Links Art Café, Whitley Bay
  • Wallis and Simpson, Land of Green Ginger, Tynemouth
  • Bamburgh Castle
  • Various National Trust Shops in the North East
