Biography

I intend my work to make people stop and think - whether that is to examine the status quo or simlly to reflect and re-appraise their views.
Over the years i have created sculpture, installations, video art, photography, graphic design and sound pieces - all whilst working a day job in sales and marketing.
Just before lockdown i took the decision that i was going to give that up to concentrate on making a living from my own creative efforts, and started a business under the name Visibull Art and Design from my garden studio in Feckenham, Worcestershire.
My current work is concerned with highlighting the hidden beauty within nature and trees in particular. In this time of serious climate change we should all reappraise our views on, and actions around our natural world.

inspiration

As an artist and a creative I think you percieve things differently.
I can look at almost anything and see a potential project but what really turns me on is subverting materials and processes to create something new thats beautiful or poignant or inspiring or affects the viewer - in a small way it influences others with a viewpoint or meaning they were perhaps not expecting.
In a similar way i love exploring materials and often develop non standard ways of using them whether its old china plates, perspex, cement, mirrors, discarded IT, and latterly sections of tree.

medium

My current main medium is print. I have developed some processes to make striking relief prints directly from sections of fallen tree.
The resulting images are naturally the same size as the piece of wood and reveal amazing patterns with viewers often seeing all kinds of other imagery such as faces and other animal or sea creature shapes.
I hand print mostky in black ink on white but also in colour as some people love the inages to fit into their decor.
I have then taken digital images of some of my work to create a eco range of t shirts often with eco friendly messages. I have also used my imagery on various homewares to popular effect and can also create bespoke iamges from customers own fallen trees as a momento.
