Artist Statement
Having trained and worked as a professional artist / printmaker within the commercial screen printing industry. I have not been influenced or disciplined in any school of thought or method. This is an important factor in my development as an artist as I have had the freedom to explore, discover and create within my own perimeters of experience.

I have worked in a variety of traditional media including watercolour, oils, graphite and screen print. I am now currently using photography, computers and digital media to generate artwork.

Looking at my work to date it is clear I am working in periodic units. These may be of a style development nature, an in depth subject study or simply be a period of time. An exhibition normally defines such a period.

I tend to work in an innovative way fusing different elements together creating art that I can only describe as being fusion art or fusionism. Essentially my method of working is an evolutionary process of joining, blending and unifying. I paint what I feel, see, and sometimes imagine. Fundamentally I always paint the things in life that touch and inspire me,
