I am a fused glass artist working from Exchange Place Studios, Sheffield. I used to be an Art teacher working in an inner city secondary school. I got to that point in life wanting to try something new and exciting and glass chose me. Using photos I’ve taken in Sheffield and Saltfleet I make landscapes in fused glass. Mainly self taught I paint trees on layers of glass to make pieces of art, bringing nature into the home. I recently attended an online class via zoom. Paul Messink, from Coachella and Crystal from GlassEmotions in Canada were my tutors. I learned how to use my skills working on many layers of 3mm glass, making more landscapes. My influences are impressionists artists, natural form, colour and texture. I make various sized pieces from small framed, wall hanging, freestanding and pieces on reclaimed wood. I’ve started to explore working deeper with glass, using several layers of 3mm glass. I have an Etsy shop, sell on my website and in independent shops in Sheffield.
