I am an abstract photographic artist living in London. After graduating in art photography, I pursued a successful career, including commercial work, exhibitions around the UK and abroad, TV appearance and many features in publications.
However my love of photography had started long ago with my fascination with light and the natural elements of photography. So more recently I decided to go back to my roots and once again explore the magic of natural light and concentrate solely on my artworks.
My work is about capturing natural light when it is at its most playful and colourful by way of refraction, It emphasises so much that could barely be seen before.
I am very interested in architecture and I believe that art has a great ability to change how an area can feel and and how you see it. So most of my work happens within an urban area. The very natural relationship of glass, reflections and refraction are the main elements of my work.
Glass is such a beautiful material. Urban reflections, urban windows offer such fascinating frames, showing an image, a representation, its counterpart, giving back. Giving away so much but never telling the truth. What is inside? What is outside?
I seek to bring a unique perspective on city life through my lens without any filters or manipulation.
