I grew up in the Peak District, surrounded by the beautiful landscape . I went to college in Bradford to study illustration and loved collage and printmaking.
After settling for a while in Hebden Bridge I saw wonderful stained glass in Hawksbys by local artist Deb Lowe. I contacted her and she let me join her in her workshop. We became great friends and she became my mentor in stained glass.
Stained glass is a wonderful medium where the method hasn't changed for hundreds of years.
Each piece is totally unique from the choosing of glass transforming coloured light throughout the day. Stained glass tells a story and the design can become quite personal and hold meaning in its painted forms.
I love the freedom of birds and other british wildlife and the patterns in nature.
Living on a narrowboat in Cheshire means I'm very close to the seasons throughout the year, and I get inspiration from that.
