Caption: Most people when they visit Sydney, in the evening, for the first time become aware of the twinkle of the lights. If you describe it to some-one they cannot image it- the twinkle is special to Sydney Australia, my home. The work was made to honour Joanne Halgren who died of cancer in London early in 2006. Her smile was a Sydney twinkle, her home.
