Art has been a quiet rapture throughout my life that nourishes as well as educates. Art and photography have been a passion since my early teens. Essentially self taught and after feeling disadvantaged without the structure of a formal art education, I have been able to develop techniques and working, practices giving me greater opportunities to explore and test boundaries. I have always painted and drawn with traditional values in mind, but a deconstructive approach to photography has led me more into abstraction.
