As a mostly self-taught artist I have experimented with most media and my present work is a combination of photos and scans of my mixed-media paintings. These are worked digitally in many layers which I blend to form a new, original image.
For many years my partner and I had a craft business in Herefordshire.
It was a move to Cornwall when I started painting and I exhibited in several galleries. A change of circumstances and a move to Devon was when I took up photography and at a R.P.S competition (2nd place) a conversation with the judge set me off experimenting with merging the photos with artwork. I find the whole process very time consuming but totally enjoyable and fascinating.
