Qualifications I have

I am self taught in kilnformed glass, although I have met many helpful people along the way who have given me good advice. I was fortunate enough to have been invited to the USA, where I took part in an internship with Bullseye glass. It was a great opportunity and I learnt a lot while I was there.

People I have been

I have had various jobs in the past including teaching surfing, sailing and other outdoor sports, repaired surfboards and worked in surf shops, and before I started working with glass I was a lobster fisherman for five years. Most of these jobs allowed me to travel and surf in the winters!! I became interested in glass after seeing some one year in Australia.

People I am now

I currently run a glass studio and gallery in Hayle, Cornwall. The gallery space is new for 2008, and I hope that it will become a space for people to see my work and ideas. I teach glass in a jewellery context at the MCSJ, but also run classes from my own studio, although we generally work with larger scale pieces.

When I am not working with glass I have a number of other pastimes. I have surfed for many years and just enjoy being outdoors doing something!!

People I hope to become

A happy old glass artist!!!!

People I imagine I have been in a previous life

I don't believe in re-incarnation, but I'm happy to know that I was once part of a star!

During the next decade I hope to...

Open a glass centre in West Cornwall to provide a focus on glass art of all forms.

Three things I want to do before I die...

  • Drive across the US slowly, on all the back roads.
  • Trek in the Himalayas and see Everest from the Tibet side.
  • Find a way of not dying!

If I had a motto in life it would be...

Do something that you love, and it won't seem like you are working!!!!

What I like about being involved with MCSJ

Great fun working with Lisa and the students. I have met some really interesting people and always look forward to teaching at the MCSJ.
