My background includes twenty five years as a graphic designer and creative director in consumer packaging and brand management.
Creating artwork has been a source of pleasure for me. While I am working on a new piece I tend to forget about everything else and time seems to go by quickly.
Most of the imagery that makes up my work comes from nature and form. I use a traditional camera and the internet to get my ideas flowing. I like to think of my work as appropriation art. I don't always try to create a series of work but I think each piece of my work has a similar personality. I like to combine images in a collage fashion, cut and paste creativity. This combination creates images I would not think of otherwise.My technique combines emulsion transfer, which I have developed over the years, and acrylic paint onto various materials such as wood, metal and canvas.
