My art background is painting and traditional printmaking techniques including Lithography and Intaglio.
In 1986 I became interested in 3d computer animation. I find the technology exciting and came to understand that it is a viable medium for my art. I now use software designed for animation as my primary vehicle for my imagery.
Each element within my pictures is sculpted within a virtual 3d environment and can be viewed from all angles on screen. Careful attention is paid to texturing and lighting in order to maintain a painterly approach.
I am drawn to narrative images that pose questions for the viewer.
Invented spaces and the stories that can evolve from them fascinate me.
