About

My paintings explore the emotional connection between individuals, between people and the nature that surrounds them and between people and their own internal struggle.

The creative process has always been a way to relax and escape day to day stresses. Time spent working in my studio surrounded by farm fields, woods and water allows for an abundance of inspiration and creates a wonderful sense of peace that is almost meditative.

Originally a charcoal and graphite portrait artist, and after years working in the service industry I found myself in a situation where I could once again focus on my artwork. A subsequent journey through a multitude of mediums from fibre arts to acrylics led to the discovery of a love and fascination with kiln fired glass. The struggle then was to find a way to combine my preference for painting with my new love for working with glass.

As a warm glass artist each piece consists of anywhere from 2-9 individually painted, stacked and fused layers. The resulting pieces can be over an inch thick with the image "captured" inside.

This multi-layer full fuse process combined with using glass as the canvas adds an intrinsic beauty, luminosity and depth to each piece.
