The finished sculpture represents the aspirations and future hopes for the Oatlands community and reflects on the past heritage of the area. The girl's profile represents the youth and future of Oatlands. Pages float from her head, each one engraved with names of local places and memories recounted by the older residents. This image of youth, looking out towards the community, symbolises the continued growth and aspirations for the future generations of Oatlands and was directly influenced by the input of the children of Oatlands.

'One Flock' represents the symbiotic relationship between people and the natural world. It drew references to the rising sea level in the area and the relationship with the community and their natural environment. The sculpture was completed in four weeks, working in close collaboration with local companies in Virginia. The sculpture was constructed with over one hundred water jet cut heron profiles, each one individually shaped and welded together to create a flowing representation of one flock ascending from the river's edge. Four figures finished in mirrored stainless steel stand like sentinels guarding the flock. One Flock represents the connection we have with nature. The installation symbolises the inter-dependency between nature and the human race.
