Art is like a language to me it speaks in so many ways and reaches out to all. Living on the Somerset Levels I am surrounded by countryside a beautifully diverse area from which I gain a lot of inspiration. I have always been artistic and interested in anything creative, especially stained glass I am captivated by the sheer beauty and colour of stained glass windows in any building old or modern. My passion for mosaic began after a long illness it became part of my healing process and a road to acceptance. I use mainly sheet glass a lot of which is re-cycled, along with textiles, papers and the more traditional materials. I am a member of the British Association of Modern Mosaics and have held exhibitions both locally and nationally. I enjoy working on commissions in conjunction with individuals making mosaics for their homes and gardens. I also teach and hold workshops.
