Professional member Argyll & Bute Architectural GlassKiln Glass


With an analytical brain, glass is the perfect mix of art and science for me. I enjoy working out the technicalities of a piece as much as seeing my artistic vision become reality.

I have spent a lot of time travelling, but the west coast of Scotland has always felt like the place I call home.  My work often takes inspiration from the stories, the landscapes and the communities of this part of the world.
