Personal Statement

Like all artists my work is constantly evolving. Initially I started my artistic career as a painter, concentrating on abstract composition. My influences at the time were Hans Hofmann, Willem de Kooning, Paul Klee, Richard Diebenkorn, Franz Kline, Mark Rothko to mention but a few. The switch from painting to photography came in my second year at art school. At the time I was heavily influenced by the work of William Eggleston, Ernst Haas, Paul Seawright, Paul Graham and Nan Goldin.

Today my work continues to grow. Initially I started back taking photographs of landscapes after a long break without being creative. Of late my work has included urban environments, portraits and abstract compositions. My work is continually evolving with new influences and inspiration. Like all artists I will continue to photograph subjects that inspire me visually and intellectually and I hope inspire you too.
