„In my work suggestions of strobing rhythms arise from the shaded layers of laminated plastic. The work is Escher-like, conjuring three dimensional trompe l'oeil illusions by manipulating the planes of two dimensional surfaces.

Each laminate component has been hand cut and carefully placed to construct a multilayered final work which incorporates up to 100 individual elements. From these flat, circular, double-sided forms emerge sculptural mirages, creating depth and play within their intersecting spirals.“
