I am a visual artist and photographer based in Ryde, Isle of Wight who has developed a photographic style that resembles paintings. My work comprises visually bold and compelling sensual portraits, classical art nude studies and erotic fashion styles. I explore themes that pay homage to the Old Masters of traditional art. Sometimes provocative other times humorous, my work aims to musters an emotional response from the audience.
Each artwork despite appearing classically painted is entirely photographic based on my own digital photographs. I combine montage and photo manipulation techniques using digital editing software to generate layer upon layer of imagery that eventually I merge to create one final cohesive artwork.
Traditionally a graphic designer, I first began working in photography in 2007. I enjoy drawing upon my immediate surroundings - the Isle of Wight, however, most of my work takes place at Studio2 in Union Road, Ryde.
My work has been published in a number of books and magazines and I exhibit on a regular basis, frequently in London.
I am an active member of The Guild of Erotic Artists.
