"I often put a photo into Illustrator, do a “live trace”, (reduces image
to a black line of pattern). Then the play starts. Combining this
image with additional images, then working in “layers” in photo-shop.
Arriving at the final image is a slow process, images must be
proofed and re-proofed. Then enlarged to ensure the image can
cope with size enlargement.
I love “colour” that’s an understatement. It doesn’t always have to
be bright, just appeal to my sensibility. Secondly, I love texture, the
more the better, providing image holds together.
So with colours and textures everywhere I’m a happy individual,
constantly thinking of the next adventures into imagery. "
