Artist statement

Reflections distort the world around you and inspire magical or dreamlike possibilities. The swirling patterns and colours evoke the psychedelia of the 1960’s and 70’s. Album cover art from this era has been a big influence on my style. I loved the colourful graphics in shows like Walt Disneys Fantasia. I’m particularly drawn to Impressionism in art and photography and love Eduardo Gordeev’s cityscapes.

The work presented here are all abstracted compositions found in every day life around the sea and wharves. Minimally edited and cropped with care.
