About

Born in 1966, I am a mother, explorer, feminist, educator, pacifist, environmentalist, artist, photographer, based in London. My first experience of photography was by virtue of my Father, he owned a Voigtländer and taught me the fundamentals of exposure and composition, thus my ‘drawing with light’ began. 

Following Art Foundation, I worked alongside creative innovators and inspirational visionaries. I commenced a BA (hons) in Photography at the University of Westminster in 2005, followed in 2010 by a Postgraduate degree in Photographic Studies. 

I manage a portfolio of projects, independent and collaborative. My practice embraces emulsion and pixels, predominantly working with large and medium format analogue, experimenting with expired film/paper and alternative processes. A fortuitous alliance with Leica inspired 35mm exploration and a trajectory of digital documentary followed. Across format, theme and technique, a juxtaposition of abstract description and poetic metaphor, the notion of the optical unconscious and the magic of chance are dominant within my photographic art.

Exhibitions of note include Photomonth, the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition, BYOP Les Rencontres d’Arles, Voies Off, Arles and the Photo London Satellite programme of events.
