Some pictures are simple and are complete inside my
head from the beginning. But most of my images start with
the inspiration generated by the objects themselves. It
may be something found in a junkshop, washed up on the
beach near my home, or something from my past such as
wooden letters from a childhood game or my palette from
my art school days. I often assemble a collection of such
items and then experiment to find the perfect juxtaposition
of composition, form and colour harmonies. The use of
saturated colour underpins much of what I create, and
to achieve this end I will often use pure pigment on the
objects and backgrounds.
The majority of the images I create are shot completely
"in camera", for some I use the computer to
create new possibilities. However it is vital to me to
have the same technical excellence in anything computer
generated as I attain with conventional photography.
