One of my great fascinations is working with the form of the glass itself, no colours, no effects, just reflections, retractions and shadows. Working with bubble powder, imagery can be created between multiple layers of glass, giving a vibrant three dimensional look. The work typically has a, monochrome, coppery Blue theme, but each of the millions of individual bubbles has it’s own kaleidoscope of colour up close.

In the bubble graphics work, simpler designs are acheived using stencils, this gives more repeatability and faster working, but still retains a unique variability.

In my Bubble Paintings, the bubble powder is applied and positioned entirely free hand, this takes great care and time to produce a coherent image. However, the result is completely unique, no two paintings can ever be the same.
