My unique and dramatic images combine traditional photographic skills with cutting edge digital manipulation; blurring the boundaries between the two. I have over 15 years of experience creating fetish and erotic art.
My award winning artwork is for sale in a range of sizes, from six foot high stretched canvases to greetings cards, all individually crafted using only the finest materials. I provide the ultimate discreet, private and highly individual Personal Portrait Portfolio service, working in close collaboration with my clients, using a unique combination of photography and digital art. I also provide images for advertising and editorials and am available for commercial commissions.
My work has been exhibited in several major fetish establishments, including the Las Vegas Erotic Heritage Museum and the Amora Academy of Relationships and Sex in London, where I had more images displayed than any other artist. My work has been published in magazines and books including Skin Two, Secret, Graal, Jade, Desire, Fetish Photo Anthology and Erotic Signature’s 'The World's Greatest Erotic Art of Today'.
My work has been heavily influenced by the Surrealist movement; the images of Man Ray, the photomontages of artists like Herbert Bayer and of course the incomparable Salvador Dali. Other favourite photographers include Angus McBean for his portraiture and collages and Günter Blum for his fishnet/body images.
My riotous use of colour is inspired by the psychedelic 60s posters of Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley. Like many of the new school of, mainly selftaught, digital artists my influences are wide reaching and include the architecture of Sir Bertram Clough Williams-Ellis who created the surreal village of Portmeirion in North Wales (set of the TV series The Prisoner).
I enjoy films by Luis Buñuel, Kenneth Anger and Peter Greenaway. Music is also an important inspiration and I regularly listens to artists like Pink Floyd, System 7, The Beatles, Underworld, The Orb, King Crimson and Eat Static.
I was born in Surrey in 1961. I worked for the Ministry of Defence on the British National Space Programme in the 1980s. I lectured in Video Production. Project Manager for one of the UK’s leading digital media agencies and spent a short spell working in the Seychelles for their television service.
However, photography and the new creative opportunities afforded by digital manipulation, were my main passions and so I studied to gain an honours degree in Media Production at Bournemouth University at the age of 30 where I was the only student to major in combining video and animated 3D computer graphics.
I am based in Hampshire (UK) where I have my studio and I travel throughout Europe for commissions.
