I focus on things or scenes that others would normally ignore in their environment – often reinterpreting and placing them under different contexts. It is a form of escapism which goes back to childhood. At times it is the space between elements that attracts my attention, how they interact, whether by distance or orientation. Their story unfolds and I am drawn into it.
