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 photomontage images are created by taking an original photograph and then building up overlays using photographed textures from my own collection. The finished product is therefore an amalgamation of multiple 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 giclee prints, but most are `one-off’ pieces.
