Through the last year there have been a number of pop up shops and online sale events that I have been a part of or hosted myself! Now things are slowly changing back to more in person opportunities but I still like the idea of staying online too….
Follow me on social media and join my mailing list for updates and announcements!
Now you can visit me in person at my new studio & gallery in Wirksworth. I have lovingly called it Create Space and want it to be a venue for you to be inspired. Come see what glass makes I have for you, the designs I’m working on and join me for a workshop. You are more than welcome come pop by for a chat about your glassy needs. Covid measures still in place, I’ll be smiling from behind my mask.

COMING UP… exhibitions of my work
Surface Details, an ongoing project I started many many years ago is coming to Sock Gallery, Loughborough.
Initialy a self lead project, a result of my fascination with taking photos while out and about, capturing images of textures and colours which most people walk past without even noticing. I believe in the idea being that we need to slow down, look around us and appreciate the little things in our surroundings.
I have since invited a whole range of other artists to join in and exhibit their work and highlight the processes they use in the creation of their work. Follow the project on facebook.
