"I have been working at unifying elements of ground and sculpture."
"There are artists working in pure sand doing some very daring sculptures using
provocative themes and interestingr content and design."
"Sand sculpture is not unattached elements, it is complete can be part of its environment
and attaced to the ground, not a temporarily object lying on a beach."
"If a temporary sand sculpture is site specific this can be used to full advantage, drawing the sculptures together from the surroundings. It pulls up from the ground in bold designs and seems to come from the earth mimicing graphic rythms of two dimensional images in complete terms".
