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 taught and exhibited overseas and recently completed residencies in both Murano and Belgium.
