Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask "how," while others of a more curious nature will ask "why." Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information. - Man Ray

I have been image making for the last 30 years, with a love of nature and a science background joining as the starting point in most projects. Following some early group exhibitions in the Auckland Festival of Photography, I have been focused on developing a long term project on spacetime. This proposed exhibition sets the scene for further explorations underway in the spacetime continuum.

My art practice is fed by my curiosity and my drive to learn, in turn fed by voracious reading, and attending public lectures and talks on diverse subjects by scientists, artists and writers. This allows me to travel in time, space, into the minds of others and into imagination, chasing below the surface for the aha moments of understanding amongst a vast realm of ideas. My art happens in the space where the disparate ideas cross-pollinate.
