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 or series of photos – fleeting, casual and disposable images which, nevertheless, reveal or suggest something deeper. I combine digital image editing, montage and direct observation to develop my idea, finally interpreting this new 'reality' as a painting in oils.
I mostly work on a commission basis, but giclee printed reproductions of my work on archive-quality paper are available. Contact me for details.
