I am a lampwork glass bead artist who loves colour. I graduated from Winchester School of Art with a degree in textile design, specialising in weave and worked as a freelance textile designer selling my designs to fashion houses, including Donna Karan and Calvin Klein.
My love affair with glass started in 2005 when I decided I'd like to make my own beads to use in my jewellery designs, then just a hobby. Since then my work has featured in a number of publications, a video and a book and I have been a regular contributor to bead and jewellery magazines. I have also taught hundreds of students the delights of this exciting and creative art form.
Colour inspires, colour captivates, whether the soft blush of a duck egg or the vibrant show of a tropical flower. For me and my work, colour is everything. I hope you enjoy looking through my work. You can contact me directly to learn more.
Here you can see some examples of my past work. Whilst these beads are no longer available to buy, I am happy to discuss a custom bead order so please get in touch.
