Heaven is a Place on Earth is a large floor work comprising 713 polished bathroom scales in candy-pop colours, ranging from turquoise and lime to cerise and black.

The Wonderful World of Abstraction takes its sculptural form from 1000's of metres of multi-coloured ribbon, which are suspended uniformly from a metal frame, to kaleidoscopic effect.
