I am an artist who has worked with fused and slumped glass for many years. I appreciate the luminous quality of glass and the clear and strikingly colourful glasses which I use. These colours interact with each other and contribute fine linear design to the final piece.
I am very influenced by the colours and aesthetics of the natural environment and need to express something of the splendour that I see and the awe that I feel.
I enjoy travelling through Australia and always marvel at the rich variety of landscapes. From sunburnt plains, sand hills, gibber deserts to rainforests, rivers, alpine snow, wildflowers and our wonderful beaches. I love my sunburnt country.
I try to work with images that evoke peace. I believe these dishes achieve this sense of peace in the landscape.
