In 1983 I made my first scratch on a glass with a basic engraving tool, held it up,to the light and was completely mesmerised by what I saw. Being in Zimbabwe, I joined the Guild as an overseas member and began to teach myself. Within a few months I was engraving for friends and then others and built a business in drill and sandblast engraving. In 2001 I brought it to Suffolk UK where I am now based.

I have had a myriad of clients from all over the world with an unbelievable variety of requests, they still challange me on a regular basis . When I have the time I create my own art glass which is available in my gallery/showroom.

I also teach glass engraving (drill and /or sandblasting) on a one to one basis.
