Artist’s Statement:

 

I enjoy both photography and painting. My influences are other artists both past and present.

There is nothing I enjoy more that browsing a gallery or an art book/magazine.

 

My Flickr.com site showcases:

 

•traditional photographs

•composite photographs

•traditional drawings and paintings

•photo/painting hybrids

•digital paintings

 

My style could be described as eclectic.

 

In my photography I try to squeeze a good or maybe even great photo out of what might have been seen as a very ordinary subject or....may not have been seen at all by those not looking.

 

As to my painting, I lean towards impressionism, surrealism and abstraction, saving my realism for my traditional photographs.

 

You will also note in my Art, that I often take a traditional photograph, painting or drawing and subject it to digital manipulation to achieve an impressionistic, surreal or abstract result.

 

In my portrait painting and drawing I tend to use some artistic licence, using the traditional as my leaping-off point, in taking the art piece towards the impressionistic, surreal or the abstract.

 

Thank you for visiting my images and galleries at Flickr.com
