I retired to Sandwich Bay, Kent in 2015 rekindling my interest in the creative arts. I joined the Arts Society and enrolled in stained glass classes at the Astor Theatre, Deal. I now create beautiful stained glass from home in my garden shed. I love to combine glass in pleasing colour ways and textures using traditional leaded and Tiffany (Copper foil) stained glass techniques. I love the simplicity and symbolism of traditional sailor’s tattoos and sometimes incorporate versions in my work.
