About my artwork
I have always been fascinated by rocks and minerals and have spent most of my life working with stone in its many forms - collecting, hammering, sawing and just being a geologist.

My artwork is based on photomicrography. When polarised light is shone through a thin section of rock, only 0.03mm thick, it is refracted by the internal crystallographic structure of the minerals to produce an astonishing array of vivid colours that vary according to both the chemical composition and orientation of the individual interlocking crystals.

John Ruskin, an advocate of “artistic science”, wrote lyrically about the beauties that could be seen using this technique. Using traditional photographic colour film to record my observations, I retain the essential character of the rock wherever possible but, using some of the tools of modern digital imaging technology, I have taken this concept to another level.

Glowing Edges Designs add a big splash of colour to modern bars, cafes, clubs, restaurants and other places of business and leisure. Future projects include the production of these as light boxes, ceramics, glass and fabrics.
Artists I like
Gaudi, Dali, Monet, Turner, Ruskin, Caravaggio, Van Gogh and many others
Photography, travel, language and food

I work for 26 years as an artist without education.
Now I have accumulated a treasure in pieces of art,
however, i´am not able to survive without help.
Do you have similar experiences.
Is it necessairy to be studied, to be able of life as an artist ?
