About The Artwork

I was photographing another horse on location in a stable compound and I had to step right back and up to the door of a horse stall to get the shoot I needed. I was so focussed on what I was doing that I didn't realise there was a horse right behind me. Suddenly I felt a deep gentle breath in my ear and then a gentle nibble of my ear. I turned around to find this beautiful creature curiously engaging with me. What a lovely mare she was! So I wanted to take her portrait too, of course. And she gracefully gave me a lovely picture of her beauty, her calm dignity and gentleness. As with "Sheikha", I often feel that I don't take the picture, but rather that it is given to me. That is a precious thing!

“It is only with the heart that one can truly see. What is essential is invisible to the eye" ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, "The Little Prince" ​When I like a work of art, it is because I am drawn to it emotionally. Without knowing why, I instinctively know how it makes me feel. Beauty and simplicity, celebrating the aesthetic, silencing the noise and transcending the mundane, everyday realities, allowing fragments of memories to feed into present experiences, exploring what resonates within. I seek emotional engagement, to have the feeling of the night, not to just see it as it is. This is my approach to image-making. ~ Over a period of 25 years, I learned my craft working in advertising and design and on art projects and exhibitions. I gradually developed a style that resonated with the truth and emotion that I was seeking. Recurring themes in my work relate to identity, and belonging. I have exhibited in numerous shows internationally, and have won several awards. My prints are owned by art lovers and collectors worldwide, and are included in several public and private collections. I now spend much of my time working on art projects and tutoring in photography and photogravure printmaking in my ancient farmhouse studio in Spain. I combine creative interests with a healthy lifestyle connecting to nature, working on my organic farm, and being with my wife and our family of Saluki dogs and Arabian horses.
