I wasn't always an artist. I originally trained as an engineer and then went to drama school, all the while experimenting with different forms of art including painting, digital photo-editing, paper art and sculpture involving electronics. Whilst I was touring Europe with a theatre company, I developed my interest and skills in photography, and spent the next few years thinking about a new way to market my shots.
In 2005, Photo-Cubism is what I came up with - digital prints mounted on a 3-dimensional structure of blocks of different heights.
Since then, my mission has become taking photography and melding it with other art forms, innovating in a technical and aesthetic way.
My work is bright and intricate, yet simple, vibrant and young.
