I create richly textured and incredibly detailed digital paintings that blend modernist and antique styles seamlessly. To create the pieces, I troll junk shops and back alleys to find interesting objects such as old sepia photos, newspapers, postcards, letters, broken watches, etc. I either photograph these objects using a consumer grade Nikon digital camera or use an Epson RX580 scan bed to scan them directly into Photoshop CS3. These "found" objects usually form the central images of my pieces. But I also use Cinema 4D r10 to create wholly digital 3D objects. I see textures everywhere and never leaves home without my camera in my handbag or backpack. My friends often get frustrated with me when I stop suddenly in mid-conversation to take a picture of a particularly interesting section of sidewalk or some rusty piece of metal.
