Artist Statement

Regardless of the chosen medium or subject matter, my work invariably involves a combination of textures, layers and subtle colours. Always inspired by textures, I have built up an extensive photographic collection over the years which includes images of old walls, peeling paint, rust, scratched metal, weathered wood and other worn surfaces.

My photomontages are created by taking an original photograph and then building up overlays using photographed textures from my own collection. Sometimes the compositions involve merging elements together from several different images. The finished product is therefore an amalgamation of multiple components and layers, superimposed over the original image, with varying levels of translucency.

Although these are digital works, all the images used are always my own, to ensure that the artwork is totally original. Some are sold as limited edition prints, but most are `one-off’ pieces.

I am a Member and a Director of the artist-run Chalk Gallery in Lewes.
