work in progress (Night sky mining) , As I have two young boys under four I often have art works on the go in the house
so i can grab a bit of time here and there when the kids are occupied.
However my 18 month year old gets a bit curious...so all works have to be well and truly strapped to the wall. This work
was exhibitied in A Personal Ecology.
