This series was my response to the idea of death. Fearing my own
death and others around me i wanted to create a series that dealt with
the theme in a graceful and peaceful manner. Attempting to put my
mind at ease. I used wilting flowers placed in water and colours that
have connotations of death, grief and sorrow. I then dropped ink into
the water and captured it as it flowed through the water. The ink for
me, represented the idea of death taking over and creeping up on us
slowly. The unpredicatble trails and patterns of the ink represent the
inability to foresee our own fate. I used a boarder and texture with the
images as my visual influence was that of the impressionism
movement and in particular painter Henri Fantin-Latour

I am a photographer and mixed media artist living in Glasgow, Scotland.

I specialise in Flower and abstract photography.
