ARTIST’S STATEMENT

My work celebrates beauty, hidden in all the usual and sometimes unusual places. Inspiration abounds in wind, metal, glass, water, fire, earth, flora, fauna and the human figure. It is both a challenge and a source of excitement to choose to see with new eyes. It requires pausing and diving deep into a particular point in space and time. Focusing on form, colour and contrast, to the exclusion of everything else, is a magical feeling. The captured images are often entirely stripped of their context, their source at times a mystery and their appearance open to interpretation. What remains is elemental, sensual and unexpected, and offers the possibility that our experience of reality can be completely redefined.
