Artist Statement

Born in Dublin, Ireland, my journey in image making began when I was around eight years old. I must have expressed an interest in photography because Santa Claus placed a beginner’s photo chemistry kit under our Christmas tree. My parents had a old fashioned brass bed with heavy blankets that reached the ground. It was under there that I set up my “alchemists cave” and began a life long experiment in image making. For me there is a need to express something more than the perfect likeness that the camera captures, an inherent wish for the input of the artist to be felt in the work. Within a very short space of time I began trying to enhance my images using various techniques, including applying tints from the kits that, in those distant days, came with Kodak black and white kits. I worked in several studios in Dublin, Ireland and London, England and San Francisco and had the priceless opportunity to work with some great professionals. During that time I had access to state of the art darkrooms in which to further my experiments with color, textures, tints and to explore printing techniques both traditional and contemporary. The work of such photographers as Nikolai Andreev, Robert Demachy, and Alvin Langdon Coburn intrigued me, I suppose their work touched a nerve. Investigating their art lead to my using techniques such as image lifts, adding pigments, layers of texture, the painted backgrounds that give my work the look and feel it...
