Returning to oil painting after a career in art education and art software development, I have become fascinated by the ubiquity of photographic 'reality'. My work often starts with a snapshot – a casual and disposable image which, nevertheless, sometimes suggests something deeper. Using image processing, montage and direct observation to develop my interpretation, the final painting is rendered in oils, hopefully producing something less ephemeral and more fully realised.
