I have been a lampworker since 1995, I have surprised myself by sticking with this one art form for so long. I do not take the credit for all the techniques, along my journey I met many wonderful artists who shared their knowledge, I want to give them all credit for my path of discovery ....

Igrew up in Newport Wales, G.B my family immigrated to Vancouver, Canada in 1966, ever since I can remember I always had a camera in my hands, so early in life photography was my art form. I always thought I would become a well know photographer, life sometimes fools us .
In 1989 I moved to Hawaii, purchased a art supply store . I began a glorious adventure . I learned how to paint with every medium made, oils, pastels , silk dyes, acrylics, watercolors, colored pencils, my favorite is watercolors. Although I loved art, no one medium could capture my full attention, I was always distracted by other mediums. I love working with bright colors, which is reflected in my paintings and my present work.
Glass has captured my full attention ......
