In this series of work, I use my eye as the canvas, the small blood vessels is the ink and the camera my drawing tool as I capture the microvascular patterns in my eye.  Reflection, mapping and repetitive forms all play a part in the photographic drawings, as I develop the drawings to a point where a new complete pattern emerges.

The resulting images of repetition and reflection lines are then translated into a unique, site specific sculpture, based on the original composition of the microvascular patterns in my eye.  The sculptural sphere is fabricated from laser cut mild steel. The laser cut pattern gives a organic, lace like feel to the piece as your eyes roam over the sphere, the inter play of boundaries produce subtle additional lines which invites the viewers to peer into previously unseen patterns.
