Artist statement

Art and photography have been a passion since my early teens. Essentially self-taught, I always felt disadvantaged without the structure of a formal art education but I have been able to develop diversity, and techniques for working across the platform of my disciplines. Giving me greater opportunities to explore my curiosity. I have always painted and drawn with traditional values, in a representational way, but my deconstructive approach to photography and digital work has given me greater freedom to explore and respond to ideas intuitively which have led me more into abstraction.
