Photomontage Works

Artist Statement

These works combine a range of different approaches through photography, mixed media and typography, using the camera in the same way a painter uses a brush. I combine photography, typography and mixed media to develop a thought, feeling or intuition symbolic of the moment. The surface quality is soft and subtle, printed in high resolution on quality fine art papers with slightly torn edges.

My work reflects life’s journey, taking inspiration from poems, quotes, found objects, places I have been and things I have seen. I like to discover delicate, intricate, unique, natural objects and engage with the environment in remote places. If you take the time to stop and observe a child picking up a seemingly non-descript piece of ‘something’ from the ground, they treasure their find and see the beauty we simply miss.

In the words of Marcel Proust: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
