Welcome to Priory Cottage

In the heart of the beautiful Cotswold town of Minchinhampton is a small family home, an even smaller art studio and some big aspirations.

Inspired by the history and the nature surrounding Priory Cottage, and the region's cherished Arts and Crafts tradition, the aim is simply to create beautiful objects with love and meaning, to give pleasure to maker and buyer alike.
 
Specialising in glass, silver, paints and furniture restoration, using, wherever possible, found and recycled materials, and employing many other crafts and techniques, every creation is unique.

About me

Although my formal education was not in art (my education and profession were in psychology), I have had a creative passion since I picked up my first pencil. This was developed in the late 90s when I first trained in glass, in the sun-filled studio of Singaporean glass artist Mei Tan.
 
Returning to the UK with a new skill, I developed my knowledge with further courses and experimentation then underwent additional training in silverwork and furniture restoration. Although I love each creative discipline, my greatest joy is combining them into a new and exciting design.
I had never considered art as anything more than a hobby until an enforced career break set me onto a new path, one which I enjoy exploring and evolving every time I enter my studio.
