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

Whilst working full time my main creative interest was gardening. I started my artistic practice by making sculptures for the garden in wood, steel, stone and glass. I now also make smaller items suitable to be displayed in the home. I like to use recycled materials where possible and introduce bold colours where I can.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I love the challenge of taking a hard material like stone or glass and transforming it into a tactile, fluid sculpture. I often seem to have more mistakes than successes, but some of my mistakes are actually the pieces that give me the most enjoyment.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I established Arts in the Marches https://www.artsinthemarches.co.uk in 2008, organising exhibitions and workshops and promoting artists. I have studied with many local artists and craft makers and gradually gained confidence to explore my own sculpting interests. I now exhibit my own work.

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

Together with Glenn Morris I established the Llangarron Stonecarvers . We usually meet on a monthly basis, new members always welcome.
I run glass fusing workshops on request for individuals or small groups
