Graphic artist and photomontagist. 
  
Artist statement: 
  
I'm a multi-disciplined artist exploring contemporary figurative work. In the beginning I mainly concentrated on large oil on canvas paintings. However these last few years as my work became more sculptural and monumental in form, it was inevitable that I would explore sculpture as a medium. Now clay forms and direct stone carving has become an increasing part of my creative output. Continually fascinated and inspired by the human form I draw upon feelings of isolation and alienation, people connecting or not connecting.
 
More recently my passion for traditional photomontage was reignited and once I started it quickly became an obsession. I'm a professional graphic designer and always had a love for the Dadaists and Russian constructivists. Photomontage allows me to express other things that my painting and sculpture don't deal with - often subtle political comment mixed with some dark humour. As a reaction against my design background I shun modern technology, preferring the hands-on, traditional cut and paste approach with no computer involvement. The challenge of only using random, found material is part of the process and allows my imagination to run freely as a narrative starts to form.
 
Like my paintings and other creative output, I seek a strong simplicity in the work. Using a limited colour palette and avoiding over decoration, the images can often be very potent but always left open to the viewer's individual interpretation.
