Artist's Statement:

I have been actively involved in photography for many years.
My interest has always been in abstract and creative photography, and I love being able to create images of intrigue.
While working with transparencies I did some lithographic film composites creating a bas relief effect.
The advent of digital photography has expanded the field and the horizons are boundless for creative work.

I have been judging camera clubs, national and international competitions since 1996
Since 2003 my creative work has been exhibited around Australia.

I have been a member of Northside Creative Photography since 2003. This club is a group of very inspiring and creative photographers who push the bounds of photography to the limits, so there is always another horizon to aspire to.

Projects that I have been involved with are the three portfolios organised by Northside Creative Photography.
2007 The Anzac Bridge – an impression
2009 Abstract Landscapes
2011 Cities of the future- Hong Kong and Macau
2013 From my Bedroom Window
