Biography

Born: 1961 in Bedford, England.

Education: Foundation in art at Great Yarmouth college of Art and Design 1979 going on to graduate with a Batchelor of Arts Degree in Glass Design from North Staffordshire Polytechnic in 1983.

In 1984 I started a business designing and making stained glass.

In the following years, after gaining recognition through the local and national press and television, the business grew and increasingly began to incorporate not only design work but also restoration.

From 1984 onwards I have continued to increase my knowledge and expertise of both architectural and sculptural art glass and I was invited to display work in the Second International Exhibition of Stained Glass at the Centre International du Vitrail in Chartres, France, in 1989. The association with this distinguished centre for glass design also included my participation in Summer Universities in 1992 and 95 in which my interests in design development, kiln formed and painting techniques were expanded.

Other exhibitions have included :-

  • Glass '83 Coleridges Gallery. Highgate, London.
  • Stained Glass Museum. Ely Cathedral. 1986-87
  • 'A Decade of Glass' Pilkington Glass Museum. St. Helens, Merseyside. 1987
  • 'Looking East' Koblenz, Germany. 1991

Although in recent years I have gained accreditation from the British Society of Master Glass Painters and the United Kingdom Institute of Conservators I continue to develop my ideas with sculptural form using glass, wood, metal and ceramics in abstract and figurative works.
