Helen is a glass artist, based at The Old Bath House studios at Broomhill in Northumberland

As well as creating the most fabulous glass pieces, she also runs a variety of workshops for adults and children of all ages and abilities.

She's been a full-time artist since 2005 after starting her career as a teacher in London.

Helen says she fell in love with glass after attending an evening course. Since then she's taken workshops with some very talented artists and teachers such as Maralyn O'Keefe and Sylvia Bearpark, who have influenced her work.

 Most of what I have learned, however, has come through years of experimenting in my studio.

"Working with fused glass is like alchemy - you never quite know what will happen in the kiln and the effect leaded glass can have on a room is magicial."

Helen says she's never happier than when talking and collaborating with other creatives, and finds being part of a group of artists at the Old Bath House both stimulating and inspiring.
