‘Ophelia’ was the first piece in my Emergent Collection. When I started on this piece I was thinking of the body and spirit floating, rising above the concerns of her life, transported in a steam of dappled light and mist .The inspiration for these effects is taken from light reflecting off moving water onto adjacent surfaces, originally in the enigmatic waterways of Venice. This inspiration has led to an intense and ongoing study of patina effects giving the sculpture a liberating painterly aspect.
