How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My work pivots around illustration and ideas. My head is full of drawings that want to come out in one form or another. At the moment I'm concentrating on printmaking as well as painting but I also spend a lot of time making stained glass panels and lights.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being and artist for me means being able to do whatever you want in whatever form that takes. Sometimes it's entirely private and for yourself but generally showing and selling work is all part of it. In my case I move between various disciplines which suits me very well.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I'm a painter/printmaker/stained glass artist/designer/sometimes potter

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I am part of Made In Ross, a wonderfully eclectic group of artists and craftspeople. I work mainly from my studio in Symonds Yat. I occasionally do lino printing workshops but my day to day practice is studio based and could be anything from sitting quietly drawing to grinding and leading glass to painting or running a print through my press.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

BA in Graphic Design/ Visual Communication - Bath Academy Of Art
I have also learnt through skilled/trained friends with whom I've shared studios in the past, how to throw, glaze and handbuild pots and some of the ins and outs of stained glass painting and construction.
