    My fascination with glass has always been compelling. I find its apparent fragility and paradoxically its great strength, extremely appealing. My first work in glass focussed on the visual impact of colour and light, with the use of vibrant colour and strong graphic shapes, which are reminiscent of my training as a graphic designer. I continue to utilise my graphic experience when designing for glass, in addition to incorporating other influences.


    My work takes inspiration from nature and the unique Australian panorama. I have been using new techniques to emphasise the ever changing and yet perennial nature of the Australian landscape. I recently visited The Czech republic and Slovakia in winter and that trip impacted on new work.
