My practice focuses on the transformation of images of the natural world. I consider the photograph as a starting point, like a palette of paint, from which I can create something new. I experiment with Photoshop, reworking and manipulating images into hybrids that lie somewhere between painting and photography. The images of minerals, waterfalls, stormy seas and planets you see in my work, though appearing real, are all artificial creations derived from other aspects of nature. In this particular series I have transformed photographs of lightning into objects that resemble minerals such as agate.
