I find glass the perfect medium to convey atmosphere and capture ephemeral effects - from shifting mists and moonlight on snow to the gleam of a meandering river.
Working mainly with "antique" glass, so called because of the subtle patterns and flow of translucent colours within it, I use traditional stained glass paint to develop a setting or effect which is suggested to me by the colours of the glass itself. I also layer pieces of glass to add an evocative extra dimension to painted and unpainted works.
The range of glass techniques available allows any size of project to be realised. My work can be smaller than a hand or as large as a window.
My stained glass projects range from one-off pieces to exhibitions commissioned by the National Trust (Dreams behind the Scenes at Nymans) and Reflections, a touring exhibition featuring stained glass paintings inspired by poems by Vanessa Gebbie dedicated to the fallen in the First World War.
Collections of prints and cards of my glass work are available.
I enjoy working with clients on commissioned designs which encapsulate messages, stories and, memories, creating unique tributes in glowing colours which will never fade.
