Biography

 Born in 1959 and at an early age I was exploring painting in oils and winning art prizes at Primary School.  I have been Glass Engraving since 1975 and am self taught.

I engrave to customers specifications and time limits, usually completing the commision as and when required.

 

Engraving Techniques

I focus on using Stipple and Drill Engraving, often combining the two for effect.

I am also learning to engrave using an antique copper wheel lathe, and enjoying it.
