The first image in the Jersey Icon series

I keep returning to this tower.
I attended art college at the North East Wales Institute aka Glyndwr University during the punk era.. . a memorable time because of the music, clothes, attitude and images. I use the term Artography to describe how I use photography and mixed media to create. After a few years living in the wilds of St Ouen, an inspirational place to live and work, I am now living near Hougue Bie and loving the change of scenery.
I am exploring ways to transform traditional Jersey monuments, relics and features into modern day icons so that they can reappear today as part of contemporary living. My artwork is a process incorporating photography, painting, software and collage to make the image I want. This has resulted in more than fifty images that are part of my 'Jersey Icon series'.
