I have been fascinated by Hot glass since I first touched it in 2002. After working as a glass artist for several years, my passion led me to take the plunge and start my own Hot glass studio in Whangarei. The level of commitment to the medium has taken me on an artistic journey that continues to challenge and inspire me. I feel it’s important to work with the glass in a way that utilises the shapes that it naturally wants to assume, appreciating and working with the tendencies of the medium. Capturing the beautiful liquid forms and stunning colours that glass offers is the challenge. I hope that this love and respect for glass is reflected in my work. Glass is a great teacher - consistent, honest and fair.
