OAK is a microscopic journey into the world of an oak tree. I was privileged to be able to work in the Applied Sciences Department at the University of the West of England, with the environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM). This enabled me to zoom in on an acorn, a twig, a leaf and bark of oak, and observe more than the naked eye can see.
I want to bring the sense of wonderment to my work that I feel for everyday things – a walnut, an oak leaf, an acorn,
I give value to each little thing, and show its importance in the world.

AROUND A WALNUT looks at a walnut through three hundred and sixty degrees.
WALNUT PEEP SHOW looks as though not much is happening in this flick book………. until the walnut shows it’s flesh …… in a flash of pink!
