My wife Lorna and I bought and renovated a 1790 Barn; this has become our home and studios. Lorna is an artist whose paintings are also inspired from Africa.

Since 1991 I have developed a style of glass which is inspired by the deserts and mountains of Africa. I work with architects and art galleries around the world. I have had many exhibitions and my work is in many private and public collections.

Work is in the collections of: Consol Glass, Gilby's Collection, Cultural History Museum Cape Town, Durban Art Museum, Pretoria Art Museum, Pietersburg Art Museum, Stourbridge Glass Museum.
