Established Photo Digital Artist. Currently working in Mixed Media and preparing for multiple Gallery showings and a compilation of my work to be published as a fine art book.

My work as a photographer and visual artist is very much a personal journey, allowing me to physically manifest archetypal imagery, born in the unconscious and accessed through a meditation technique called “Active Imagination.” (Jungian psychology places a heavy emphasis on dream interpretation wherein the content’s of one’s unconscious are translated into images, narrative or personified as separate entities … The Red Book) Artists such as Salvatore Dali and Pablo Picasso used this same technique.

Although trained as a traditional photographer, I found that various editing processes allowed me to manipulate images in a more conceptual, painterly direction. As part of my creative evolution, I now find myself experimenting with more mixed media techniques. In my opinion, while the ways and means may vary, in the end, it is all storytelling.

Endlessly influenced by The Great Masters as well as Victorian literature and art. Tennyson, Keats, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John William Waterhouse and the Pre Raphaelites Brotherhood helped shape my vision. Photographic voices include avant-garde photographer Man Ray, the great innovator Edward Weston and the diverse Paul Strand. Most recently and profoundly influenced by the writings of Carl Gustav Jung.

        • Thank you so much for your compliments Mykel - I would do anything to model for you - I think I live in the wrong country! Where/when are you publishing your book? I have such a colourful and bizarre life story to tell and have always wished to create a kind of photographical autobiographical account of my journey as a firstly, clown in Africa - and then my career as an erotic performance artist and fine art nude model. It is artists like yourself whom give me the encouragement to go ahead and continue to pursue my dreams and for that I am so grateful. Thank you (-:
