My inspiration comes from natural rythmical patterns found in nature. We have a myriad of beautiful patterns and colours in this wild and magnificently beautiful, fantastically magical place.

Lifetime experience;

Apprenticed mechanical engineering technician at Hayward & Tyler, Luton and worked in specialised engineering projects worldwide.
Working with glass in various forms since 1992, exploring decorative glass by gilding, engraving flat glass & crystalware, kilnwork including painting, coldworking, fusing & slumping.
Lived and worked in Belize and returned to UK so that our children could finish their education in the UK and have reasonable opportunities afterwards.
I’m now resident in Belize for the duration 🙂



Current activities;

Working from home studio, exploring the addictive intricacies and fascination of torchworked borosilicate glass.

Future hopes and ambitions;
To continue workshops/skill-sharing activities for people interested in learning the craft or wanting to augment their current skill level.
To create a skill source centre.
To generate more interest and promote Art and Craft in Belize.



Hobbies and interests;

Outdoor interests include walking, natural history and ecology, whilst guitar, reading, engraving, calligraphy, woodwork and acknowledging simple acts of human kindness are other pastimes.
