Originally I began to use digital photographic printing to output work that I was producing. This was both photographic and computer generated. I had started to be interested in using digital technology in my creative practice around 1996, after taking an MSc in Computing. I had the idea it would give me some financial stability and time to do the painting that I wanted. As it turned out I just started to use it to create work. This saw the introduction of my use of the 4:3 picture format but it was the cost of printing and detachment from a physical product that lead me then to look at screen printing to output my work.
I have always been attracted to the idea of making multiple works as a way of echoing other creative production, reducing a unit cost and making art more every day and not so exclusive.
