About

I paint realistic birds by hand on coloured glass and sell these glass paintings as electrically lit wall hangings.  I kiln-fire the painting onto the glass using the traditional methods of stained glass windows. My glass paintings deliver the delight and awe that I experienced from the subject.  I love birds because they are beautiful and they can fly.  I love glass because it is colourful and it is shiny.  I have recently transitioned to being a fine artist glass painter after twenty years of making stained glass windows to commission.  My glass painted artwork is now represented by Red Dot Gallery in Holt.

My lion drawings, in pencil on paper, are touching, inspiring, expressive and detailed.  Each drawing meets a need or expresses a feeling within me. I might draw a strong gentle lion nuzzling a small child or a child charging into battle riding a lion, or an elderly man and a lion sitting quietly together.
