I was born in North Yorkshire and I have lived in Leeds since 1997 after time overseas in Canada and Australia.
I have had many different jobs, most recently as a teacher of English as a second language. I am now semi-retired and thus have more time to devote to other interests.
I have always been interested in creative activities and after taking a training course in fused glass I have found a material that suits me well, involving colours and technical skills. I have moved on from smaller projects to larger bowls, dishes and plaques and I aim to incorporate recycled glass in future work.
My ideas stem from nature, books, the internet and sometimes serendipity!
