|Artist Statement - Once Upon a Time
I have been inspired by the work of the Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones and this piece is a reference to our 'inner landscape' and the importance of the forest environment in our folk/fairy tale tradition. This mosaic is made using a mixture of stained and kiln formed glass pieces.

|Artist Statement - Secret Squirrel
Is made from clipped fragments of vitreous glass mosaic tiles, applied fancy mosaic glass shapes & nuggets with glazed clay butterflies, leaves & flower heads. There is also the addition of beach combed, sea turned pottery which has been purchased from fellow beach combers & collected by myself & my sister from the beautiful beaches of Fife in Scotland. This assemblage of mosaic & mixed media items has then been decorated & embellished with gloss green enamel, gold leaf, prismatic glitter, faux cabochons, faux pearls & rhinestones.

|Artist Statement - Bird, Snake & Animal Head
Forests and the incredible diversity of animal life that they support are the inspiration for my imaginary forest creatures.

|Artist Statement - Humming Bird
Hummingbirds are a beautiful native of the rainforest and my inspirtation came from a poem by Keats. The opening line is 'What is more gentle than a wind in summer?' and that is what I have called my piece.
