Artist Info: "My work explores the origins of iconic items from the inventors vision to the finished product. What began as a search for textures to blend into my Fine Art photographs has translated into a unique collection of prints that tell a fascinating story. I was looking at patents for interesting old text and drawings. When I saw how well the drawings complimented the photographs I decided to create the Patent Artwork series. From my earliest years I have always been fascinated by inventiveness and where things came from. Add this to and incurable appetite for trivia and history and you will understand why I get so much pleasure from researching the inventions for my prints. As legal language and the draftsman's pen are juxtaposed with a photographic image of the actual invention the viewer is left with a glimpse of how a dream became a reality."
