Projects
  • Prism Colour Pop
    Prism Colour PopBold, bright and oozing with colour these four pieces come from a collection of 8 in total. The series represents the child within me, that loves bright, colourful things but in a controlled manner because, lets face it, to much of something is not good for you! These playful pieces capture the way the different colours merge with the prisms to make really fun and daring pieces of abstract photographic art. Available in Giclee prints from the ArtGallery.co.uk
