My work celebrates beauty, hidden in all the usual and sometimes unusual places. Inspiration abounds in metal, glass, water, fire, earth, flora and fauna. As I go about my daily life, whether I am close to home or far away, it is both a challenge and a source of excitement to choose to see with new eyes. It requires pausing and diving deep into a particular point in space and time. Focusing on form, colour and contrast, to the exclusion of everything else, is a magical feeling. The captured images are often entirely stripped of their context, their source at times a mystery and their appearance open to interpretation. What remains is elemental, sensual and unexpected, and offers the possibility that our experience of reality can be completely redefined.
