Primary Type of Art: Glass
Pieces of Work
"Prior to my formal art training, I spent two years in the studio of the late French tapestry designer, Dom Robert. This was to prove a strong influence for me with its decorative emphasis of pattern, texture and linear design.
"I spent three years at Wimbledon College of Art in the early 1960's eventually specializing in stained glass, wood engraving, graphic design and lettering in which I took my diploma. My grounding in calligraphy and hand made letter forms was to stand me in good stead when I came to glass engraving later on. Three years in a stained glass studio preceded seven years teaching art in the private school sector. It was later on that the fortunes of chance brought me to the delights of glass engraving.
"I became a craft member of the Guild of Glass Engravers in 1978, and ten years later I was elected an Associate Fellow. In 1997 I was made a Fellow, and I am also a member of the Contemporary Glass Society."
