I offer a range of visual arts workshops using photographic images as the starting point to explore process and making. I work across and am particularly interested in combining digital technology and analogue materials. Photocopiers, digital bluetooth printers, mobile phone cameras and iPads are combined with 35mm slide and OHP projectors, found postcards, holiday brochures and alternative photographic processes such as cyanotypes, photograms and chemigrams to create fantastical images of the imagination.
