The Beekeeper's Daughter

Simple understated beauty

Artist's Statement

I work with kiln formed and kiln carved glass, combining my love for textiles with both. Over the last two years I have been working more and more towards finding ways of in cooperating free motion machine embroidery innovatively with my glass work. The luminescence of glass and the satisfying almost drawing like quality of the textile work excites me greatly.


I am influenced by the colours, textures and sounds that surround me. I like working with a muted colour palette that reflects the natural colours of my chosen home land. A sense of place is important in my work, if not always apparent on first glance.
