As a child amongst nature I found a land full of magic lit with incredible peace and sheer joy. I found a place of belonging where there is no judgement, no pressure and no time limits and without realising it a place where the rest of the world falls gently into perspective. This ‘communing’ with nature has continued into my adult life and I spend time every day amongst the flora and fauna that surrounds where I live - either just being amongst it, or studying it, or when the time is right - photographing it.)
I have now found that through my photographic art I can actually re-create the feeling of congruence and magic I first experienced as a child and I now want to lead people down to the bottom of the garden and introduce them to that magic - show them what Fairies really look like and what they get up to, invite them to dance with the flowers and to perhaps allow them to find their own breathing space whilst they are ‘involved’ with my images.
I have the distinctions of LRPS and ARPS with the Royal Photographic Society and am currently working towards my Fellowship.
I was Winner of the Wildlife in the Garden Category 2010 with International Garden Photographer of the Year.
Shortlisted with International Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2011
