What influenced your career path as an visual artist?
My Dad had a darkroom when I was very small. I spent many hours from the age of about 8 on in the dark watching photographs magically appear in a tray. Guess I was hooked from there.

What kind of work will you be exhibiting for sale at Moss Rock Festival?
I will be exhibiting mixed media photographs that are mounted on either metal or transfered into wood.

Tell us a little bit about your creative process.
I photograph my subject and then  collage in textures and paints to create a background. I print the image onto transfer film first. After drying, I mix gelatin, water, gel medium and marble powder, cook them in a microwave and strain over wood. When it has cooled down to a specific temperature the film is rolled across the surface and the ink is transfered into the wood.

How is your work inspired by nature?
My work is inspired by the  perfections and imperfections found in nature. I like the complexity of a single object. I love that I can walk my dogs and find subject matter in a pile of leaves.
