I often feel exceedingly lucky. I wake up in a country where there is no overt conflict. I have a house to live in and my children are fed and clothed and go to school. I have spent the last 25 years learning about and making art. I know that there are many people who are less fortunate than me.

I live right next to the studio where I make my work. The house and studio are in a garden. As I learn and grow and work I can watch the seasons passing expressed by the trees and the things I plant. I watch my children learn and grow also as they move through the house and garden and studio.

I see many things in life and in the world and I try to understand them. Among the difficult and confronting things I look for the positive and beautiful. This gives me the drive to keep looking and moving and making and to keep sharing. My work and practice is driven by the positive and beautiful experiences I find in places and in people.  I find that the way people respond to and represent their environment and culture is beautiful. I have particularly looked at different textile and painting practices as response and expression. I also draw on landscape, both rural and urban as a way of understanding my own and other peoples’ response to place. Often in my glass work I am thinking about what connects me to a place or to people or to objects. I aim to distill the positive I see in the world into the glass objects I make, and to share the positivity I see with people.
