Biography: Darren was born in 1973 in the city of Bristol, UK. He was introduced to photography at an early age by his Father and developed a love for the medium. A desire to produce complex, fantastical images was limited by the black and white printing process. It was not until Darren began his degree at The University of the West of England that he was introduced to the software package Adobe Photoshop and suddenly any image was possible. Following several years of experimenting with Photoshop and producing composited images in a painterly style, Darren began to use a technique that would allow him to produce images in the same way that a painter works with a canvas. By creating areas of colour on the screen, he could use a digital brush to push and merge the colours into any shape he liked until the desired effect was created. This approach allowed for incredible freedom of expression. 'Spirit Guide' was the first image Darren produced using this technique and he has been told by a friend, who specialises in Tarot card readings and crystal work, that the image is a portrait of his own spirit guide. This creation spawned 5 other works that were all created in the space of several weeks. These include, 'Raising Beauty', 'Forest Spirit' and 'Mother Nature'. All of these explore spirituality and beauty. Darren has sold his work at various exhibitions and his images have been used to promote numerous events including classical concerts, art festivals and even Snowboarding!
