Roberta has a background in science and technology. She has work in private collections in the US, UK, Europe and Australia and has exhibited internationally.
“My work is inspired by my underwater experiences, the language of bubbles and the amazing world of strange and wonderful marine creatures. I want to share this passion through my work and hope that, in the words of Rachel Carson, 'The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.'
The creation of my work involves using traditional glass techniques, in non-traditional ways, to make unique, sculptural work and installations. The transparency and movement of hot glass captures a snapshot of life in a way few materials can.”
