Home Biography Influences Contact Links

Calming art in a frenetic world.

My video work is figurative and I am the figure, I make self portraits and montage them into video footage and still images.
They are available to screen anywhere in the world. A preview DVD is available to interested curators please contact me.
I sell them on the Saatchi Art site in very small limited editions of three or five my page on the site is here.

My videos are available to exhibit worldwide and I would be delighted to hear from anyone wishing to screen my work at a video festival or exhibition. Please send me an email.

I continue to make new videos as ideas emerge from within and from making images, I always carry a camera.

To the right are links to videos that have been exhibited in various parts of the world.

I have work in the permanent collection of the Video Dance Centre of Burgundy, France.
