Writing this journal is a documentation of my work and how I use my environment to inspire and influence my work. It aims to show a diary of what I’m up to and what I like to do in London and on days away – so there will be photos of projects I’m working on, and how those things came about as well as interesting stuff I see, or experience. I hope it is inspiring, both about sharing my glass work, and also from the observations I make as I mainly cycle, (or stroll) around London and further afield, always looking,(often upwards!)and always with my trusted camera to capture not only beautiful, remarkable, or unusual sights, but also hidden or unnoticed gems that catch my eye.. So I would like to share any photos I love, that inspire me or that thrill me.

Winter Blues….

Winter can be so beautiful…..here are a couple of photos I took a few years ago when London had snow…      and a few other pics of winter trees, I love the silhouette and form of the trees against a winter background.. how beautiful these are …      So I was inspired to dig out some pics of […]

Powerful Art….

Sometimes words are not needed……This powerful piece of public art captures so much in it’s visual message… I visited a few weeks ago…and just stood for ages..looking, marvelling, and contemplating. It certainly instils a lot of emotion.. public art really can reach out in a very beautiful and meaningful way….     How utterly moving it […]

Glassy collaborations..

Whilst working on mainly my own projects in glass, I have recently been having a great time, collaborating with a great friend and fellow glass artist, ‘extraordinaire’, Delia of Apollo Stained Glass who’s studio is on the floor above mine, so not far to go for a chat and a cuppa!  After lots of cuppas and chats, […]

Waves in the bathroom…

I have just taken photos of a recently installed bathroom window commission I made for a client in London. The client’s brief was to create a colourful window using blues, turquoise, greens along with other accent colours that featured in her bathroom..she had striking coral red wall tiles in the shower area so this was reflected in […]

Opening up

I cannot believe it is open studio season again…over the next few weeks, I will be opening both my home, and studio for visitors to come and see my varied glass work in situ. Artist’s Open House, as part of the Dulwich Festival is a great event allowing visitors to create their own trail around SE London […]

Strawberry Glass

I visited the most striking house, called Strawberry Hill, in Teddington the other weekend, which has just undergone a massive restoration. It is simply the most incredible interior…quite mad but beautiful. Built and lived in by Horace Walpole, youngest son of our first Prime Minister, Robert Walpole. It is well worth a visit, as it is one […]

Klee’s colour… brighten your day

 With this ongoing dreary weather, I needed a colourful boost to energise me, so I went along to visit  the Paul Klee at Tate Modern last week, and was not disappointed. His colour studies are simply beautifully executed..I  particularly liked his jewel like compositions, with gradual shifts in tone and colour Here is his Red Green and […]
