As a visual artist my creative practice is rooted in my love of photography, capturing images that evoke a reaction in the viewer. It started with my first camera – a Kodak 110 instamatic – progressing through 35mm to Polaroids and 120mm film; ‘going digital’ while lecturing at university in the 1990s using Apple’s QuickTake and the Kodak/Nikon DCS. My creative practice uses a bewildering combination of film cameras, instant cameras and digital equipment to capture my images then I experiment with different printing, media, mounting and framing techniques to create my pieces.
