Artists Statement: 
"Simplicity" fits well to describe my work: simplicity of subject, simplicity of form, simplicity of light which joins together the components of my artwork, creating an harmonious glass object. In my "Sunrise cube" I capture into the glass the instants in which the sun rises and sets on the beach of Fraser Island (QLD). The piece captures the appreciation of the delightful moments and experiences nature can offer us.
