  • Artist Statement

    My initial background in Architecture and the recent completion of a Master of Studio Art (Glass Studio) at Sydney College of the Arts in 2002, where I still teach short courses in glass kilnwork, have been major influences in the development of my artistic practice.


    As a member of the national Ausglass organisation, I have exhibited in many national exhibitions, the most recent in Tasmania, January 2009.


    Light, space and colour are all concepts that are inherent in my glass work, whilst the textural nature of the sculptural work, adds another dimension by creating a sense of internal depth and perspective.


    My practice involves not only the design process, but a ‘hands on’ approach by constant experimentation with various techniques and using found objects to create the initial model for the process of glass casting.
