I love creating pictures that tell a story and I've spent a lot of time lately building on a collection of images with a narrative. Many of my ideas come from reading, I read every day, mainly fiction and love the escape this offers but I also collect lots of ideas from music lyrics, lines from overheard conversations and obsessive listening to Radio 4 while I'm working. I like ideas that seem dreamlike, surreal and nonsensical and the fact you can get away with that in a picture. In the picture above 'Horses in my Dreams', the horse is blind and cannot see where it's going, it has wheels instead of hooves, the rider is disconnected from the horse - lying along its back - all impossible but giving flight to the imagination and hopefully resonating with the viewer. This is an endlessly fascinating process to me, as is the physical process and method of picture making. These are all made using digital collage.
