"I'm inspired by the sensual and the surreal, our inner worlds and our outer presentations, by uncertainty, ambiguity, and the unexpected. I'm constantly amazed by the incredible power and immediacy with which an image can strike at the heart of you - with far greater force and speed than language, and touch something deep and unknown. I'm also fascinated by the way in which visual art, and photography in particular, can raise unanswerable questions and can simultaneously intrigue and repel."
"I'm a freelance photographer first and foremost and use the digital process as an aspect of my work. I've exhibited widely throughout the UK and had work featured in many publications, most recently being featured and reviewed in the British Journal of Photography in November 2000. In 2001 I was awarded first prize in the Kentmere Awards (digital section) and was also a merit-awarded finalist in the London Photographic Awards (LPA.5). In 2002 my work was exhibited in Nova Gorica as part of an international computer art festival, and In October 2003 my work was shown as part of the Zone Zero 10th anniversary exhibition in Mexico City."
"I sell my personal work as limited edition signed and authenticated prints (10 per edition) through a variety of sources. I also exhibit new works on my own portfolio gallery site and balance my commercial freelance work with teaching appointments and writing for a variety of publications and websites. I'm currently working on a number of personal projects which I'm hoping to bring to fruition in published form and through exhibition."
