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

My work is inspired by the British countryside, not just its beauty or drama but also the invisible tapestry of myth and magic which is interwoven with the landscape and the familiar flora and fauna that we feel so connected to. I try to imbue even the smallest of pieces of my work with a sense of this magic, to do justice both to the subject matter of my work but also to the glass itself; a material with alchemical qualities and a mystery of its own.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Creating an artwork is, for me, about creating a thread of communication between nature, spirit, myself and other people. A successful piece of art is like a conversation that can be had silently between people who may never meet but which will change the atmosphere of someone's day or outlook, perhaps temporarily or even permanently.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?:
