UK Artist ~ Bio
Welcome to my little corner of the internet where I hope to intrigue you with imagery that is recognisably photography, remains believable, yet cannot be real.
I am a self taught photographic artist and my work involves combining large numbers of digitally captured images using photomanipulation techniques. I photograph all the elements myself either in my studio or on my travels.
Inspiration comes from many places but the wonders of nature, a little self reflection and my previous career as a psychologist are frequently strong influences.
If you’d like to delve a little deeper a selection of my latest work can be found in my Portfolio.
