I am an Artist and Photographer living in the local area. I consider myself lucky to live in this beautiful part of the country, surrounded by a rich and diverse coastline with amazing sunsets and an abundance of natural woodland. They provide endless photographic opportunities as my artwork is very much inspired by nature and the area in which I live.
Although nature is at the heart of my photography, my photographic style is quite abstract. I like to take a shot and then use various techniques to manipulate and enhance the image; I particularly enjoy the editing stage as it allows me to be really creative. The image often undergoes a substantial transformation, although still retains elements of the original photograph.
I also like to draw attention to familiar aspects of our environment, which at first glance may seem quite ordinary. However, they often possess a natural charm and beauty. I like to highlight these qualities in my photographs and show the subject from a different perspective.
My photographs are printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Lustre Paper (260gsm). They are Giclee printed with Archival Inks (guaranteed to be fade resistant for 100+ years).
