I have had a love for all things visual. Ever since I was born I have had an insatiable, unquenchable thirst for answers; a giant question mark… burning deep inside of me. It has always been hard for me to take things at face value, instead I want to dig deeper, find my own answers. I can be quite stubborn in this regard…sometimes this has lead to me chasing my own tail, but I like to think it’s what lead me to becoming the photographer and artist I am now. Now I get to create my own worlds, moods, feelings, emotions, and even better still… I get to share it with the world.
I love people, they fascinate me. Viewers will find with most of my imagery that there is always a human element. Even in my images of places, I tend to have a person silhouetted in the vista. Why? A lot of my fine art work is inspired by Earth… what I see when I’m out in nature. Yet always for me there is a human impact: a telephone pole, a road, a sign. It is so hard in this modern day and age to escape to a place in nature where you are truly away from others. In my portraits I like to see the human face as a landscape within itself. As we age, our bodies go from soft and smooth to worn and loose. Our faces slowly start to droop and sag as the years pass. I like to think that we are books: our faces are the covers to the stories on a never-ending story of life which each day we add pages to.
