"Ones work is based on the sea, beaches and coastline with all its magical powers from a grain of sand to a flicker of light upon its space.
From its magic I hope the piece of work will hone a creative feeling within the observer. The perspex sculptures are a particular series based on the different movements of light reflected upon its form which then is developed through a process of analysing within the studio, creating a feeling of ectasy within it.
One develops all the ideas through exploring the different qualities within all materials."
