I am a 2D fine artist, predominantly focussing on printing, painting and photography. Starting with photographs, I take inspiration from nature: the interplay of sunlight; the formation of shadows and silhouettes, and reflections in water: from puddles to the sea. Also the sky; clouds, dramatic and threatening, or light and insubstantial, creating a unique and limitless visual theatre. Other work takes inspiration from functional, man-made objects, beauty in the mundane; padlocks, keys, tools, bikes, books and tables and chairs. I am not solely attracted by the forms and texture of the objects themselves, but in the relationship between positive and negative, by their compositional qualities.
