Artist Statement regarding the artwork
My work reflects my family life; these mischievous, colourful glass sculptures have evolved from drawings inspired by playing with my children. My work is bright, child-like, and playful, subtly hinting at emotions, feelings and thoughts. I want the viewer to be drawn to these cheeky, individual characters hoping they raise a smile!
