About

I am inspired by spaces that  make us feel small and awestruck, like mountains, cathedrals and space. The numinous. Glass translates this atmosphere, history and mystery like no other material and I have been in love with using it since I first began experimenting in 2013. I make work inspired by these themes alongside more traditional stained glass commissions.
