Born in Glasgow in 1950 and having spent 40 years in London I now live in Hastings and London. I have been making images since the sixties originally across a range of media and having accumulated a considerable back catalogue of work together with renewed interest in making new photographic images I have held annual exhibitions over the last 10 years and published the first of four planned books in 2018.
Some of my work focuses on relatively "empty stages" with expectations of “something about to happen” or “that something has happened”.
More recent developments have explored “Modern Landscapes” using extrapolations and extrusions to create new images from camera originated material
