About My Work

I am an artist, photographer and poet whose fine art background emphasises the visual impact of images, use of words, concepts, communication and the subversion of reality. My work displays an interest in that which can be seen and unseen, that which is heard and unheard and all those things that go unnoticed.

Images and words play such an important role in how life is viewed and experienced. They are the most powerful forms of communication and representation affecting the manner in which one views, responds to, interprets the world and the human situation.

Painting, photography and poetry are the means by which I represent and respond to what goes on around me; a world filled with varying human experiences, emotions, textures and juxtapositions.

My paintbrushes, camera and pen are the tools used to try to understand what I see and hear. Each genre is a journey of discovery, an invitation challenging the reader and viewer to enter, participate, respond, interpret, make connections, enjoy and to question.
