Professional Photography/Fine Art Fanatic

introduction

I draw inspiration from my own life experiences. Regardless of whether you can relate to the narrative you will still experience it on a personal level as my work is designed to emote the viewer whether it's a serious narrative or light hearted commentary on life.

Within my work I initially try to create an aesthetically pleasing composition which most will be able to appreciate and enjoy at face value. It is the process of peeling back the layers of the piece to uncover the real back bone of the work which is where I like the viewer to interact. Sometimes it’s light hearted fun and other times it can take more investigation. It is this evolution within the viewer’s mind as they come to terms with what they see that I find most fascinating as individuals reactions can vary greatly. I strive to create artwork which forces people to question their perspective. Whether this is their perspective on life or simply on the piece I want them to become aware of their individuality and what’s important to them. My work aims to push people out of their comfort zone and explore something new – a new way of thinking, a new life experience. This is important to me because I very much try to push boundaries within my own life and I strongly believe my work will grow as I do and alter as my perspective does. My work is my life and I want people to experience it.
