ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

I am a glass artist living and working in Denbighshire, North Wales. I live and work rurally in North Wales and my immediate environment provides my inspiration. Natural structures such as algae, lichen, moss, grasses, ferns, and fungi. I am interested in the complexity of life- how within each organism are other organisms,

each living its own unique existence, layer upon layer of complexity yet a universal oneness, the feeling that we are all the same thing- a system, in communion, a beautiful symphony.It is this blissful, expansive and calm space that I access through nature which is what I am trying to communicate and share in the medium of

 glass.Other inspirations are- light, the magical atmosphere it can create in the landscape but also the way it interacts with glass- shadows, reflections, the qualities of matt and shiny surfaces.I am also interested and influenced by the cataloguing of nature- natural history artifacts, early cyanotypes, x-rays,

 microscopic images and botanical drawings.I like to combine techniques- cast, pate de verre, kilnformed, painted, etched and also found natural materials in my work. I play with ideas of magical realism- creating my own forms inspired by or combining different plants and organisms.
