In 2000, I opened my own studio,  where I both practice and teach glass art.  I work  mostly to commission and for exhibitions.   I work using contemporary leaded techniques as well as fusing, painting, sand blasting, and kiln-forming.

I  exhibit  regularly in group exhibitions,  with the Scottish Glass Society and elsewhere.    I have had  solo exhibitions  in Falkirk  Park Gallery,  Peter Potter Gallery in Haddington,  Harbour Gallery in Port Seton & in the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh.

I give individually designed lessons (up to 4 students, but usually one or two) in glass fusing and sandblasting in particular as well as other methods.  For further details and to apply, email to the address above.

Employment / Training:
Following my scientific career I studied at Leith School of Art and The Open College of the Arts, and attended several glass courses including two Master classes at Northlands Creative Glass Studios. 
I have commercial installations in Crief, a 'famous grouse' window at the Glenturret Distillery.  I made 4 backlit wall panels for Bar Habana, Edinburgh.   I designed and installed 10 windows/door panels in Balerno Parish Church in 2007.  In 2008 I designed, made and installed (with the help of the metal worker) a metal and sandblasted glass decoration for 8 full-length windows, and an above door window, in the new Inverkeithing Civic Centre.  I have 3 fused/leaded panel in the Mill Cafe, Balerno.   Recently completed a commission of  a front door in the Borders, and a Glass light box 'Cycle of Life' for the new St Columba's Hospice, Edinburgh.
