I make stained glass pictures and suncatchers using the copper-foiling technique, also known as 'Tiffany-style'.
My glass journey started in a freezing granite studio near Sennen, in February 2017, on a one-day course with Richard Pett, whose work I had admired at a local craft event. And I fell in love. An adult ed course in copper-foiling followed and I was away. With the encouragement and support of Cornwall Ceramics & Glass Group, I braved my first exhibition in October 2019 and sold my first picture.
As an artist I am inspired by Cornwall’s big skies and constantly changing colours of the ocean . I choose to use glass in a range of colours, textures and combinations to enable me to capture that sense of awe. Introducing pebbles collected from the beach adds another dimension to my work.
A selection of my work is available from The Cowhouse Gallery in Perranuthnoe.
