I discovered fused glass shortly after graduating with an illustration degree in 2003 and it has been the main creative outlet for me ever since then.
Working with glass not only affords me the pleasure of working with such rich and beautiful colours but also allows me to indulge in my love of illustration too, whether it is direct drawing or using patterns and images.
Inspiration usually starts from a colour combination that I've seen somewhere, whether in the garden; a magazine or perhaps a fabric shop. From that the piece gradually evolves, choosing colours and patterns carefully until I'm satisfied. None of my pieces are ever exactly the same, every one is unique.
