Because the concept and the process is as important to me as the finished work I find that I am drawn to a variety of media. This is because the philosophical learning that occurs when an idea is fully realised can easily cross the media-line. This philosophical/universal enlightenment is the foundation behind my projects and the projects are united under a common banner. 'Trace Elements' has become a concept as much as a title for a finished piece. It embraces the idea of value arising from the humblest source- the poorest materials.

Painter, film-maker, photographer, installation artist, musician. I move between these disciplines, sometimes blending, sometimes isolating. The process being dictated by the nature of the project. If in harmony, the work feeds back and provides a wholistic guidance from which other projects grow.
