In this modern age of constant sensory overload we all need an anchor to re-center ourselves, for me it is art and music, consuming one while creating the other.

I’d describes my art as an emotional spectrum, I create to feel, and because I feel. Some of my favourite pieces have come from my worst times, and some of my least favourite pieces have helped to draw others out of theirs, leading me to realise that mainstream ideals of “good art” are as much a part of the noise as anything else, what is important is the emotional response, whatever it may be, specific to every person to view a piece.

In some of my pieces I attempt to reflect an image, something I appreciate through the chaos of our modern lives. Excessive noise and distortion can sometimes more clearly define the subject of my photo, a paradox that could probably be made to mean something deep.

I left Seattle for 14 years at the end of the ‘90’s. The iconic Seattle grunge culture was something I always missed and can certainly say left its mark on my lifestyle, and it comes through in some of my photos as well. Variety and experimentation have always been important to me, so of course I don’t limit myself to one style. Straightforward photography has its own place in my galleries.

For my edited photos I use an array of worktools all on my iphone though I am now expanding into more film and digital photography, which will mean I am going to be using my computer for more in-depth work.
