My background is in surface pattern design, but in the last 20 years I have worked in the youth and community field, including as a community artist.
Creativity will always win out though, and in the last 2 years I have had the pleasure of seeing my images used all over the world, on various websites and blogs, cards and calendars and to my delight on book covers (books are my other passion).
Photography is now my main medium. I aim to tell stories by using colours, texture and natural light. I am inspired by the natural world, and how our lived in world is changed by the passage of time .
