"When I was a child I was always making "things" and just don't seem to have stopped! Inspiration comes easily in the form of mixing colours and textures, irrespective of the medium. I would describe my creative process as uncomplicated, intuitive fun. The important thing for me is not about reaching a goal, it's just to keep on making the next step. I don't start with a fixed picture of what I want to achieve, but flow with the making process until I can pull the work together. Sometimes a Piece just rushes together, other times I have to move through a whole load of phases. There is a moment when I know I've done all I need to do, and the work is as finished, as it will ever be. However, I always feel that no piece is ever completely finished, it's merely a signpost along the way.I am now working in the medium of glass. I create plates, bowls, brooches and large glass panels by fusing, slumping and painting layers of glass in a kiln. The "layer upon layer" collage techniques of fusion, and the medium of glass speaks to me because I love to find hidden depths in what I am observing."
