Inspiration and subject matter
My art is thematic, experimental and multilayered: recent series explore change, cultural icons, music, homages to well-known artists, environmental concerns, fantasy and mythology. Key artistic influences include painters (including René Magritte, Joan Miró, Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, Michael Craig-Martin, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Robert Motherwell), photographers (particularly Ansel Adams, Minor White, Jerry Uelsmann, Pete Turner and Jay Maisel), authors (Terry Pratchett, JRR Tolkien, PG Wodehouse and Jasper Fforde) and musicians (Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Paul Simon).
Creating my art
My artworks are informed by the interaction of light and the physical environment, and are created through the use of a range of convergent imaging technologies (digital drawing and painting, computing, photography, scanning, etc). As a life-long photographer, I was always been drawn to hues, textures, form, pattern, tone and line, and these elements accompanied me when I added digital art to my creative pursuits.
My images are usually output as archival pigment prints on cotton rag or high gloss aluminium. Most are released in limited editions of 10 prints.
