‘I love the unique, natural beauty that we have in Britain and spend much of my free time capturing its splendour. I translate these images by initially using bold colours and simple shapes, then layer glass frits and powders on top before fusing to create a glass painting full of colour and texture.
I create pictures that make me happy and hope they evoke a positive feeling in others, either as a memento of a special place or simply as a colourful picture to escape a grey day’
All pictures are made with glass which has been fused in a kiln. Summer Hedgerows in made with glass line which is a type of liquid glass. The picture has been built up and fired 4 times to gain the intensity of colour, this is done in a more “painterly” style.
