Welcome to my creative world

I am a stained glass artist from Surrey and I tell stories using the beguiling beauty of glass. The changing quality of natural light passing through my windows reflects my love of the changing seasons. My artistic quest continues as I learn from each new piece of work I produce and by studying other artist’s creations. Every single person who has commissioned a stained glass window from me, bought my art work or visited my garden studio in Godalming has helped me on the way.
I invite you to share the journey with me as I explore what makes a timeless and beautiful stained glass artwork.

Everyone should have a room of one’s own, Virginia Woolf said. So back in 2014 we built an outdoor Dojo for my husband, James, to practice his Tai Chi in and to store his large collection of practice weapons – swords, spears, staffs and guandao (an alarming spear with a curved blade on one end).

I remember sharing a bedroom with my younger brother and sister when we were very young. On the wall was a poster of Bruegel’s Children’s Games. We used to talk about which child we were. My sister was the little girl in white with the blue headscarf and I was the one looking after her.

Spirits Holding Hands

I had the pleasure of visiting Caroline and Tony Benyon's studio recently to see the new window they have made for the OBE chapel in St Paul's Cathedral. I spent three hours sketching the beautifully painted glass and learning how it had been made. Most of the glass...
