“I have always used the three different mediums to express my feelings towards life and it’s surroundings”
I can’t hide behind lights and technology, I am reliant on a Nikon camera, patience and lots of optimism,but what I get in return is the chance to make an honest picture which people know immediately is a genuine momentand which hopefully burrows deep into their memories”.
“I achieve my unique style of part- defined, part- abstract by applying oil and plaster to canvas. Usually applied with
palette knifes and fingers”.
