I'm a member of the Gallery @ the Guild, an arts co-operative in Chipping Campden, where you will always find my work alongside Cotswold artists and fellow craftspeople in the Old Silk Mill www.thegalleryattheguild.co.uk The Gallery is open 10am - 4pm, 7 days a week.
The wilderness, beauty and isolation on the west coast of Scotland had a dramatic impact on me and was the initial impetus for starting to draw/photograph in my 20's in an attempt to capture what I was feeling and seeing. This experience ‘sparked’ my emotions and has continued to be a major influence in my work.
I don't have a genre per se, but at the heart of my work is an emotional response to and celebration of the natural world and the elements.
Shape and colour are becoming more prominent and superseding the importance of the actual subject in some aspects of my work. My drawings have always taken an abstracted form. Some areas of my photography are beginning to take on a similar form as I experiment with Intentional Camera Movement (ICM), longer shutter speeds and multiple exposures. In addition to my nature images I now enjoy searching for these shapes in urban and coastal areas, buildings, churches, machinery etc. Street Photography is a growing interest.
As my work evolves and I venture beyond the documentary and representational image my impressionist and abstract style is developing.
I sell my images on variouse materials in differant sizes. Limited edition giclee prints are on fine art photography paper. Prints are signed and framed/unframed. Limited edition giclee cards, open edition cards, original photos under crystal clear acrylic glass and on aluminimum are also available.
