As an artist I have two opposing processes: one mechanical, the capturing of light and the other intuitive, an unconstrained manipulation of texture, shape and colour.
My mixed medium works are the converse to my photographic studies. If photography is defined as the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy, which I used to suspend nature; then my paintings, drawings and sculptures are a subconscious response to my experiences in nature.
Although both techniques reveal my deep connection with nature, the end results are quite different. Where my photography illustrates, my paintings express.
My practice is almost always a sequence of techniques, expressly process-driven.
