About the artist DAVID LACEY
Born and raised in Amesbury Wiltshire (which many will know is home to the famous Stonehenge), I currently live in Ilchester Somerset with my lovely wife Rebecca and son Jack. Since I first picked up a camera at the age of eight, I have always had a passion for photography. My inspiration comes from my inner desire to capture the colour and beauty of a specific scene which if missed at that time, could be gone forever. The advent of digital was a godsend to photographers like myself in that the expensive film processing costs simply vanished overnight. Digitalization has also allowed photographers to become super creative with their work. My particular art is all about texture and colour. I use a process whereby the original photograph is modified using digital manipulation to create unique and stunning artwork which looks part photo and part painting. The original photographic image is carefully enhanced by adding varying degrees of colour and texture, which in turn creates greater depth to the artwork. Although this process creates a completely new and unique image, the content and composition of the original photograph remains ‘exactly the same’. This is an aspect of my work which I feel very strongly about. If you start changing the content of the original photograph (the reason why you took the photo in the first place), that ‘magic of the moment’, could be lost. All artwork is a Limited Edition of either 3 or 15, with a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity. See individual listings for Limited Edition Size.

As a self-taught photographic artist I have been producing my own style of Photo Art since 2018. My inspiration comes from a desire to create something unique and special in photographic art.
