i draw nearly every day, images that come not from life as such but from memory or my imagination. drawing is key to my artistic practice and that is how i approach the tools i use. the engraving drill feels as comfortable to me as using a pen or pencil, and if all is going well i don't have to worry about technique getting in the way of expressing my ideas.
the subject matter of recent work is a personal response to common human experience. in exploring this i find myself playing with techniques and effects that are new to me and as diverse as gilding and video animation. i am still discovering the possibilities there, using them to pursue what i hope is an identifiable personal working style and an individual, contemporary approach to the traditional craft of glass engraving.
i make original art for exhibitions, galleries and collections. contact me here
