I am using computer manipulation in conjunction with traditional techniques to produce images. I can paint on the screen using a light pen instead of a brush and, using Photoshop tools, images can be cut out and pasted to produce collâges. But there are many other things that can be achieved, such as changing transparency or the colour of an object as well as adding textures and using filters to alter the image. The final artwork is saved as a file and sent to Bob Law, specialist giclée printer, at Photoart GB, who skilfully produces it as a printed image. These are limited editions, printed on to archival quality paper with light-fast inks. The file is destroyed after the allocated numbers are produced.
A certificate of authenticity is issued with each print, stating the number of the print as well as total number in the edition, the sizes of the prints, the type of paper and inks used and date of production. It is signed by both the printer and the artist. This ensures that the print being sold is of high quality and produced to the requirements of the artist.
I have chosen places that I find interesting, natural forms which I come across or plants I grow in my garden as a basis for the work. Inevitably, life experiences which happen whilst creating these images seep subconsciously into the artwork.

I was getting concerned that my images were becoming a bit dark and too depressing, so I have started playing around with colour a bit more. I like the way plants look at night, lit by neon lights or the moon and there is a beauty to their structure and the shadows they cast.
