I often use photos in artworks: cut them up, burn them, score them, deface them, scribble on them, etch into them, scorch with acid, put them together in a sort of jig-saw, or print them onto clear acetate and incorporate them in layers into a collage work and illuminate them in a light box. Thus the focus of the photograph shifts from the subject represented on its surface, into an object in its own right.

I am an artist who lives in an old Methodist Chapel in the heart of a small rural village on the Western edge of Dartmoor, Devon. I love wild places and make work about the pilgrimages I make. Most days revolve around the needs of my two ponies and two whippets and writing a book about one of my epic equine pilgrimage. Otherwise I spend my time creating: with camera, pencil, pen, brush or collage. Also blog posts about walking / thinking / observing / drawing. A spiritual quester who enjoys sharing my encounters with the mystery and magic of everyday life, both mundane and profound. Above all, always searching for the core of my creativity.
