A style born out of a sense of place, a deep love of country and a particular colour palette.
Contemporary Art Photography
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, working on Contemporary Fine Art Photography and personal projects.
I shoot with both film and pixels. My work occupies the threshold space where the disciplines of art, design and photography overlap, merge and coexist.
To my fuel vision, quality time spent at the Manchester School of Art and University of Gloucestershire covered these three disciplines, 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. As a result of my research into Minimalism, I have become fascinated by both Scandinavian and Japanese Aesthetics which has influenced my photographic style.
Beyond my Art Photography and running workshops, I can be found working independently as a creative/art director, photographer and consultant. If you are looking for a creative heart to set your small independent business on its way, then do please feel free to contact me.
I am happy to work on a range of projects - from complete branding concept for your business or on projects within established brands, bringing in my background in colour and design skills.
I love to share - encouraging fledgeling photographers to find their wings or established photographers to share ideas and theories. I offer private or small group workshops either in private homes or studios or other location spaces. I love the idea of bringing like minded people together at a gorgeous country location with beautiful, locally sourced, seasonal food to see us through our time together.

Away from the Lens
Away from my work in Photography, Creative Direction and Mentoring, I can be found exploring the notion of Liminal Space - the time between the what was and next - a place of transition, of waiting, not knowing - whilst providing a space for the now. This moment - coming from a place grounded in nature, of course.
My research into Colour - its origins, meanings and psychology continues...
