Not so long ago, I attended an exhibition and was talking to this photographic artist who had his work on display. It was beautiful work, that had an ethereal quality - abstract, nuanced and unique in its artistry. I found his work inspirational and I felt drawn to it. It was during our chat that he said to me, its ok to experiment to find your own "voice" and not to be discouraged in doing so. He had explained to me how he came to discover this style in his work and suggested that I allow myself the opportunity to break convention and play. 

So I guess  that is what I am doing. I am going through a phase of experimentation. My work at the moment is playing with notions of creating painting like qualities through photography. By taking inspiration from the masters of Impressionism, I am attempting to capture images of familiar urban landscapes but recreating them in a different way.
