This photograph shows me in my garden in Marlborough, Wiltshire, where I have my studio. I specialise in painting, sandblasting and firing glass panels - anything up to two metres long fits in my kiln. Otherwise I work with factories to get my designs made up, sometimes in glass but also in acrylic, vinyl, paper and fabric. I usually work to commission, my projects have taken me into buildings old and new all over the British Isles.
When I was given this shirt recently, I knew immediately where the stained glass was from (Chartres). I have been studying stained glass for ages, and in fact it was the realisation that windows more than five hundred years old were so much better than most of the modern ones I saw that made me want to have a go myself.
To read more of my opinions (I really try not to be negative) go to my blog.
You can find a complete list of the projects I have completed for public buildings in this section and examples of some of these 77 commissions under the Archive and Gallery sections of the website. I also make windows for people's homes (see Domestic Windows under Gallery). Please contact me via email if you would like to commission me or if there is anything else you would like to know.
