Artist's Statement:
I have always had a ‘love affair’ with photography, cinema and textiles.
My inspiration and approach to photography is greatly informed by my background in design.
I am very ‘drawn’ to moody, dark, ethereal and evocative images, which allows me to explore issues of emotions and inner feelings, sometimes dark and complex.I continue to be challenged by my restless mind…….. in pursuit of perfection!
I am incredibly proud and honoured to be featured in the 2017 Silvershotz Folio Annual amongst so many other talented photographers. The Annual is a beautiful coffee table book containing 160 pages with 130 full plate images being the work of twenty five photographers from 15 countries and has a limited edition print run of 800 copies.
More detail about the Annual can be found here.
Thank you for taking the time to visit.
