Artist’s Statement:

My life is a whirlwind. I rush from one thing to the next and not surprisingly everything passes me by in a blur. In complete contrast my art is considered, planned and often the result of many hours of research and experimentation.

My preferred medium is photography because it provides instant results. This might seem to contradict what I said above but photography allows me to experiment in many ways, using my observations, experiences, the unusual, making the use of everyday objects seem interesting, and I try to discover the hidden stories within them.
