Thank you for viewing my work.

I enjoy abstracting the ordinary and looking for the art in nature.

Most of my work is shot on film, although I find increasingly that digital work is creeping into my portfolio as I discover it with my daughter Tessa, a budding photographer whose work you will at her own RedBubble site.
