I have recently moved to the beautiful town of Tavistock in the county of Devon; this ancient stannary town has so much heritage and creative atmosphere by truly artisan individuals and businesses.
My new studio workshop is located on the same site as national company Nathan McCarter Joineryand I feel we share the same values with regards to how we approach our projects with all clients. The family friendly team have been most welcoming and all the staff are exceptionally professional; I feel truly blessed to be working alongside them in this wonderful place! I am most fortunate to make a living doing the things I love – Stained Glass and Illuminated Lettering.
I have a keen interest in history, literature and art and I think my skills in illuminated lettering and stained glass complement each other. With both mediums I believe “In images the illiterate read” as quoted by Pope Gregory the Great (540 – 604) and from this I hope people look a little closer and find beauty, joy and inspiration for themselves.
I have qualifications in Fine Art and Design, Life Drawing, Mathematics and English Literature. I served an 18-month stained glass apprenticeship with company ‘Charles Lightfoot 1890’ based in Manchester, 2004. I am currently mentored by Master craftsman Jim Collis for all my stained and leaded glass work and by local artists Patrick Corbett and Anne Robinson for my illuminated letting, watercolour, gilding and workshop content.
If you have any questions regarding these subjects, please get in touch; it will be a pleasure to be able to help and hopefully answer your questions!
