Discovering the freedom to explore the possibilities of printed material as my chosen main media




Creative Artist

My recent battle against cancer and subsequent recovery opened my eyes up to the wider world of art. Having been a graphic designer since the late 1970’s, I had become somewhat conditioned to create for a commercial outcome and had very little time to explore and find my own artistic style.

I haven’t given up on traditional medias I’m just combining them all together, exploring the possibilities of printed material as my chosen main media.

Almost all elements of my work come from discarded/used magazines, books and other printed materials and are cut out and sculpted by hand. You could call them recycled art.

The animal kingdom is under threat far more than ever before with the increase in population, industrialisation and meeting the needs of the human race. Animals cannot voice their concerns, views and campaign about what is wrong and what is right.

They cannot fight so it’s up to us to do the fighting on their behalf.

In my eyes each threatened animal is a warrior and should be seen as one, for if they could they would stand up and unite no matter how large or small.
