Every morning the sun passes my door and lights up these glass bottles with fiery light, the vibrancy of life only lasts a momment . The pumpkin too only blossoms briefly.

Working in traditional mediums,pastels,oil,ceramics.Using these mediums I seek to express my surroundings by weaving a tapestry of colours through my work and seeking the abstract within.
