My love of glass started in 2017 when I attended a Leaded Stained Glass evening class at a Forth Valley college in Stirling. At the time I was enjoying a career in the world of IT at an insurance company, I have subsequently left the hum drum of the IT world to work with glass full time. Over time I have taught myself other glass techniques such as copper foiling, fusing and painting on glass. I went on to formalise some of my knowledge by gaining an HNC in Glass Art and Design from City of Glasgow College. Now I am back at Forth Valley College studying for a degree in Art and Design
I create unique pieces of art using glass in my own studio at home and I am lucky that I get to work with the amazing yet challenging medium of glass every day. As ShogieB I use stained-glass techniques as well as fused glass to create contemporary, bright, fun pieces.
