About: Originally I learned to work with stained glass to make windows for my Victorian house.  I loved the medium and continued creating with glass.  I like to experiment with colour, textures and materials and love to dream up new and original designs.  Most of my stained glass items are suncatchers, but I also make funky framed stained glass panels.  I delight in turning discarded glass and ceramics into funky mosaics.  It’s all about recreating beauty out of glass and ceramics and other found materials.  Glass can be broken and reassembled into new and often surprising forms.  Discarded tiles and china come back to life when smashed and transformed into a necklace, a pot, a mirror, a box or a table.  I use recycled materials as much as possible.  I make my own designs and am always looking for new and original ideas.
