About

photography exploring the

inherent beauty of nature...

Being the middle of three generations of film photographers, I always feel extremely proud that photography is firmly embedded in my DNA.  My upbringing of film, piles of negatives, a red box brownie camera and the smell of the darkroom are responsible for my deep, continued interest in shooting film and traditional printing.  Being in the darkroom is hugely important to me.

I am fascinated by the thought of transient beauty, Japanese Aesthetics, symbolism and organisational systems - happy in the knowledge that this concerned Eugène Atget and Karl Blossfeldt. I love design and to blur boundaries or flip the norm when creating imagery - through abstraction or simply bringing the outside in and taking the inside out. I have a thing about verbs for living and nature tables, both of which stem from my childhood.

To fuel my vision, academic studies have covered Art, Design and Photography, culminating with an MA in Fine Art Photography and papers written on Colour Psychology - all of which continue to feed in to and directly influence my work.

I shoot with film and pixels and often fuse the two.
