My training in both illustration and textiles has led me to working in a wide variety of fields including archaeological illustration, children’s books and children’s television. For the past thirteen years I have been exploring glass as a medium which I love so much for it’s vibrant colours and textures. My inspiration for both my illustrations and glasswork comes from many sources: the sea, plants, animals, people but also from imagination and from memories of trips to visit my grandma in St Ives in Cornwall and journeys to Europe with my parents.
I am currently focussed mainly on pieces for the home - windows, splashbacks, tiles, mirrors and panels set in stone. I also enjoy working on commissioned pieces which are more personal in nature for special birthdays or memorials.
I run a range of different workshops in glass and other media and have a lot of experience of working with people of all ages (including children) who are experiencing mental health issues, bereavement and loss. I believe that creative work can be very healing and have worked with carers groups, adults with learning difficulties, young mums experiencing post-natal depression and in adult and children’s hospices. I am a qualified teacher and have also trained in arts psychotherapy, play therapy, spiritual healing and reiki.
My studio and gallery is at Broadwindsor Craft Centre, Broadwindsor, Dorset DT8 3PX where I share a space with my husband Phil Brown who works in stone creating hand carved house names and memorials - www.wordsinstone.co.uk.
