Jennie is a full time, lampwork glass artist, melting and sculpting glass rods in a torch flame to create her pieces. She is a self-taught artist, learning from books and the internet since 2009. She uses other materials including wire, metals and mixed media to complement her flame worked glass components. Jennie continues to evolve as an artist. She is particularly drawn to botanicals and has developed a signature style of melting glass onto wire and steel rod to use in her pieces. In 2023, Jennie will return to traditional bead making, adding the twist of her botanicals for a truly unique jewellery collection.
