About

I have always been particularly inspired by the surrealist movement and fantasy art from a young age. These artworks fascinated me as I found they had an emotional depth that was missing from more traditional approaches to art such as landscapes and portraiture. The impossible landscapes and strange figures of the surrealist movement spoke to my imagination and imagination after all is the window that we view the "real world" through.

As a student I specialised in IT and systems development, it was then that I discovered digital imaging. I was immediately fascinated by the flexibility of tools such as Photoshop and 3D Studio Max.

My visual poetry takes these ideas a stage further giving the written pieces and imagery more depth and power then they could achieve in isolation, this has now become my main method of working, I often create lyrics and visual ideas at the same time to create a finished piece that is more than the sum of its parts.
