A lion and lioness in powerful and majestic poses. Two pieces of photo-art from a couple of brilliant original photos. Click or tap on the image to see more.

Apple Collection

Images of an apple I picked up during a video shoot at a local spa. I used a minimal studio setup using photocopier paper and window light to produce the original photographs. I'm now working through the photos to see how many derivative pieces of photo-art you can get from one thing. Click or tap on the image to see more.

Branching Out

Old Ivy Tree

Go to the gallery

This is an experimental digital painting created from a photograph taken near Allensford, Derwentside. I'm fascinated by trees, they are the true dominant species of planet earth, and studies have proven they are not the silent, solitary organisms we think they are. It's another subject I revisit regularly. Click or tap on the image to see more.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
