I have spent thirty four years working with glass, initially falling in love with glass art while travelling the west coast of America in the late seventies. On my return to Australia I studied Art Glass techniques of Fusing, Slumping, Painting, Firing and Glass Sculpture at what is now the University of Southern Queensland.
I was engaged to do extensive teaching tours in the North West of New South Wales including the TAFE Colleges at Inverell, Boggabilla, Warialda Adult Learning, Inverell Adult Learning, Inverell Art Society, Manly Warringah Community College, The Armidale University Union Creative Arts School and Summer and Easter schools at the University of New England in Armidale. I have been represented in various exhibitions with other artists in the New England Region.
I was the winner of the Armidale Heritage Award working with glass, I have been commissioned by the Anglican Church Armidale, the Sacred Heart Church Inverell, the Armidale Cathedral and the Inverell Shire Council for works of art and restoration. I received a Bi-Centennial grant for restoration of the Anglican Church at Tingha.
I was commissioned by the AMP Society for their Sydney "I am Australian" showcase to provide six panels depicting Australian culture (see sculptured page) and also by the NSW Canterbury Leagues Club and the NSW Rockdale ex services club to provide decorative artwork for their Restaurants and Bars.
I was commissioned by the Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce to design and provide the Business Excellence Awards and the Carnival of Flowers Awards for 2008 and more recently commissioned by the Chinchilla Church of Christ to design and supply two Stained Glass windows for their new building and the Russian Orthodox Church at Kangaroo Point in Brisbane for a panel to match their Icons in the renovated Church.
My studio is now in Inverell Northern NSW.
