Introduction

I am a visual artist producing work for public commission and exhibition. I am interested in using technology to produce imagery, looking at how it influences our view of the contemporary visual image. I aim to question peoples' perception of how photography records and depicts something that is real.

My work is developed as an exploration of, and reaction to a particular situation. I am interested in how both the process and the material influence the creation of the work and that the ‘subject’ is often secondary to these. I am interested in the part technology can play in the production of artworks and how this can be used to engage on different levels, as well as influence a design through the means of its production and ultimately our view of the final work.

I have undertaken many commissions with imagery digitally output in various media; vinyl on architectural glass, laser cut flat forms in steel and large format digital printing. Commissioned works have often involved consultation and engagement activities which have been used to inform and develop the final work. I have worked with community, youth and special needs groups as part of this process.
