Following an extensive career in the mining industry I became increasingly concerned about human-kinds effect on the environment. I use photography as a palette for the creation of stimulating visual compositions that have a clear, concise visual and intellectual impact in the viewer’s mind. My process involves connecting digital images in an ‘Escher’ like manner, grabbing a viewer’s attention with their visual vibrancy and the apparent way in which the pictures seem to shimmer and resonate.

The large photographic panels consist of spiraling interconnected images, suggesting the irreversible destructive spiral caused to our environment by human reliance on carbon emitting, carbon based technologies. Also the photographs with the abstracted repeated forms are analogies of human excesses and warped multiplied examples of our growing environmental negative outcomes.
