My pieces explore ideas of the embedded object and memory. The found objects I use are metaphors for recovered memory – forms of association and representation. I see these materials as artefacts which have a powerful relationship with the environment I have taken them from. I use objects which pull away from their environments acting as signifiers of residual memory.

Creating needle felted marvels!
My interest in glass started from my work as a graphic designer in London and Edinburgh and has slowly grown into a passion for creating unique and original handmade pieces of glass. My inspiration is nature and the beautiful environment of Fife and Scotland and I incorporate beach combing finds and natural materials, amongst others, into some of my contemporary glass pieces.
