Concepts
I work primarily to commission using glass and flooring materials, combining texture, pattern making, image and colour. After researching and taking the site into consideration, I work in an eclectic and intuitive way, producing designs and finished pieces. The work often contains repetition, loose pattern and natural rhythms, portrayed with energy and gesture.Influences
I work within
a decorative and stained glass tradition.Career path
