I am inspired by the ancient examples of cylinder seals and consequently have made large examples adorned with my own carved designs. I then rolled these cylinder seals onto the surface of sand. The results usually show a myriad harvest of living creatures adorning the beachfront or sand of the desert.

My seals are diverse in terms of their shape, size and materials. Small seals can be printed on clay. I print my large cylinder seals along the sands of the beach and desert. The best photos can be taken in the early morning or the late afternoon, when the sun is at its lowest.
