About

'Light and nature are a main theme and fascination for me in my work. I like to draw inspiration from the natural environment and my current work is in response to the Wild Gardens, near to where I live. The transient nature of the content is recorded using a combination of media. Fleeting glimpses of detail, tree branches distorted in the water and changes of light are all combined to capture a sense of time and place.'
