Work in private collections in Britain, America and Australia.

Since leaving college I have used a wide range of found materials in order to explore aspects of transformation and identity.  Over the past five years I have been working in a similar way with computers.  Each print originates from a digital photograph, or sometimes from an earlier file, which is used as raw material and then heavily manipulated using Photoshop until it loses its original identity and becomes something new.  This process of abstraction often leads me back to images which contain figurative elements which were not present in the source material.  It is this aspect of the process which fascinates me at the moment; the idea of capturing, distilling and making explicit some resonant aspect of place or experience without necessarily representing it in a literal sense.
