I am a local glass mosaic artist and tutor from Eatons Hill where I create and teach this art form from my home studio.

I have been exploring the medium of stained glass for 11 years when I took a lead lighting course, something I had always wanted to try. Although I loved the craft, I found it to be too limited and precise for my impatient nature and I wanted to try and create more painterly effects with glass.

I discovered that mosaics could be so much more than carefully placed little blocks of colour or broken china which although beautiful, didn’t give me the results I was hoping for, so, I started experimenting with ‘brush strokes’, shards of glass, hand-cut and shaped to give the impression of paint.

This process takes many hours, a detailed piece can take months to finish but the process is incredibly rewarding, and I still prefer this technique, and this is the way I teach my wonderful students to mosaic, many of whom have been coming to classes for many years and are talented artists in their own right.
