Hand Painted Photography. Inspired by Colour. Driven by Travel.

The marriage of monochrome imagery impacted with abstract colour is the basis of the hand painted photography that I continue to develop. My camera has historically been the tool I use for quenching my creative thirst. Capturing moments through image-making is complimented with colour combinations inspired by the countries I visit.

My need to travel is almost as strong as my need to create, the two come hand-in-hand as integral parts my creative outlet. Walking old streets, hiking new trails and exploring many places provides the best source of inspiration for my art practice.

The varied photography used throughout my portfolio is a reflection on my interest in capturing many walks of life. From architecture, landscape and people, I use a documentary style of photography whilst capturing moments.

The unsettled nature of nomadic living has ensured I have a constant flow of ideas keeping my art expanding into different and sometimes unexpected areas of focus. The variety of photography is a direct response to the lifestyle I lead, the change in scenery inevitably has a big impact on the direction of my work.
