The spheres series emerged from my original shells series and represent pearls or celestial orbs.

This group of (mostly) small format pieces completed my idea of outer space as a location for planet-sized shells instead of the deep liquid spaces in which they naturally occur. The balancing tension between nadir and zenith sufaced for me there and continues to be a source.

It is from this period that chef Jamie Oliver commissioned a Moon painting during our stint together at The River Cafe in London.
