A Glasgow girl, I always wanted to be an artist, and have never wanted to do anything else. Against my parents wishes, I pursued my ambition and studied at Glasgow School of Art, gaining an honours degree in silversmithing and jewellery. I exhibited my work in London at New Designers and thereafter at The Helen Drutt English gallery on Fifth Avenue, New York. Subsequently I was offered a position of stained glass artist and designer with one of Scotlands largest stained and decorative glass firms. Over the years, I learned a broad range of stained and decorative glass techniques, creating designs for homes, churches and businesses across the UK, using a broad range of decorative glass techniques. More than a few years later, I embarked upon a new career as a teacher of art and design, which I loved, yet the draw of being a working artist still beckoned. Whilst teaching, I continued to create stained and leaded panels as commissions and began also to paint, exhibiting my work at various exhibitions across Scotland. I worked on illustrations for a variety of projects and even wrote and illustrated a children's book as I explored my creativity. When the opportunity arose to finally pursue my ambition of working as a full time artist and designer, I was delighted to secure a fabulous gallery space in Dunblane which I share with my husband, Kieron Lynch, an architect, who oversaw its transition from 60's retro building society to the very beautiful and elegant space that it is today with its original features that had remained hidden for many years! Thus far, I have filled the space with paintings, illustrations, stained glass and jewellery which I hope you will enjoy. I look forward to being creative for many years to come and would welcome opportunities for collaboration. I hope that you will join me on my journey.
