Winning #sbs is an immense honour. I've immediately increased my followers on Twitter and as I love promoting bespoke stained glass, this has really helped to widen my audience. I am passionate about my craft and am working hard to let people know its not all about church windows!
I am passionate about glass! I have worked professionally in stained and decorative glass since 1986. I was trained at a prestigious London studio by elder craftsmen, in all the traditional techniques which have changed little since medieval times. In 2001 I set up Abinger Stained Glass and have been exploring new ideas, techniques and finishes to combine with the old to add interest and depth into my work.
I proudly have my initials in a large heraldic window in Westminster Abbey, London for my part in running and working on the project in 1995.
I've carried out stained glass work which has been shipped all over the world for many different faiths.
I love to create bespoke designs in glass to enhance living spaces.
I worked with Kirstie Allsopp on her Channel 4 programme Kirsties Homemade Home in 2009 and 2010.
Be passionate and work darn hard! Always pick up the phone and be cheerful when you do. Don't work with children or animals ( I do both!)
