I finish my sabbatical July 2019

Thank you for visiting my website.  I am on a sabbatical taking time to study at London School of Supernatural Ministry in East London http://www.ilssm.org.uk/.  I've been having a lovely time laughing a lot, giving free hugs, lifting the atmosphere, seeing 47 miracles including legs growing longer right before my eyes and spending three weeks with https://www.burundiyfc.org/.  I have also been making a few stained glass windows and lots of drawings.  My colleagues would be delighted to offer you their services until I return to my art work properly, and their details can be found hereIn July 2019 I will finish at LSSM and move to North Norfolk to set up a studio and make more beautiful stained glass windows and drawings.  

  • I graduated from Roehampton University in 1999 with a 2:1 degree in Public Art.  Since then I have been designing and making stained glass windows for churches and front doors.  All my clients and the windows I've done have been very special to me, including when I designed a window in memory of Churchill in Bladon in Oxfordshire. The window was unveiled in 2014 by Camilla Duchess of Cornwall.
