Artist's Statement:
I reside in Sydney have a long-standing passion for photography and the visual arts. I have studied print-making with Sydney artist Susan Barran and experimenting with 19th century photographic printing processes such as cyanotype and gum dichromate printing. I see an exciting future in the melding of traditional and digital photography with these historic processes and traditional print-making.
