My work has its origins in where I am – my surroundings, my garden. I work in a close-up realist mode often characterized by meticulous attention to detail. Savouring my subject matter I try to reveal the beauty and fascination of the ordinary and present each image as a jewel to be treasured. Despite an adherence to realism I hope my work reaches beyond superficial appearances to imply hidden narratives which provides the work with a super-real edge. Some of my more recent work explores the tensions between light and dark being particularly sensitive to the subtleties of light and the qualities of reflection.
