I am an emerging glass artist with a varied portfolio featuring both design and sculptural glasswork; my interests include contemporary design and portraiture. Having completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the Australian National University in 2015, I have gone on to work as an associate glassblower at JamFactory in Adelaide. My art and design work has been featured in the ANU Graduate Exhibition, 2015, the Random Gallery, 2015, and the Canberra Design Week, 2014.
