About the Book
Cycle is a collection of Photofusion artwork that captures, illustrates and portrays moments of natures great cycle - the 4 seasons. It is not a definitive collection and as with nature it will change and grow with future cycles.
Each artwork begins with a series of photographs, something random, something composed, something noticed, a moment captured in the cycle. After a lengthy selection process the most interesting photographs are separated and grouped together ready for the next stage .
Using photo editing software all of the selected images are filtered with paint effects. They are then blended and fused back with the originals. An evolutionary process of applying effects, blending and fusing continues until I feel I have the right images for the final art.
The last process and perhaps one of the most exciting is the application of symmetry whilst constructing each final artwork.

Having trained and worked as a professional artist / printmaker within the commercial screen printing industry. I have not been influenced or disciplined in any school of thought or method. This is an important factor in my development as an artist as I have had the freedom to explore, discover and create within my own perimeters of experience. I have worked in a variety of traditional media including watercolour, oils, graphite and screen print. I am now currently using photography, computers and digital media to generate artwork. I tend to work in an innovative way fusing different elements together creating art that I can only describe as being fusion art or fusionism. Essentially my method of working is an evolutionary process of joining, blending and unifying. I paint what I feel, see, and sometimes imagine. Fundamentally always painting the things in life that touch and inspire me, www.artfusions.co.uk
