For over ten years I have been exploring the exciting art medium of cast glass.  Through the attributes of glass (light, colour,  fragility, tactile)  my art practice reflects on the relationship between objects, memories,  and ones sense of identity.

My art studio is located in Nelson, New Zealand a region that  inspires and cultivates my art practice.
