From studies of molecules and microscopic sea forms.

From studying molecules and microscopic animals from the sea and various planktons, I have evolved these forms, which as a group form a wall hanging. I have work on aspects of the sea for twenty years, remembering vivid experiences of when I was sailing. I work by discerning the opportunities offered by chance effects. Tonal areas are made by chemicals while details are scribed into the metal and some areas, polished. Sense of pattern is prominent in the evolution of these natural designs and to capture the pulsing actions and movement of these live creatures I apply coloured metals.
