Hello fellow artists, art appreciators and purchasers. This portfolio is the most extensive display of my work, which started in 2008.
As a photographer, I am drawn to shapes and patterns in the world of colour. I explore visual patterns in gardens, in landscapes, and in the macro world of flowers, plants and nature. Portfolios such as Marvelling the Mushroom, Flowerography and Nature’s Details feature images with this theme. They focus on the delicate beauty of the floral, garden and natural realm – in their petals, seeds, leaves, stems and bark, and in the compositional beauty of created and natural gardens.
The urban world and the world of manmade objects are where I find abstract images in the scratches, bumps, and bruises in the environment. Peeling paint, rust and decay blossom into new forms to create Portfolios such as Urban Extractions Series, Whimsy in Rust, Surfacing Attention.
