I am a self employed Massage Therapist working from home in the Melbourne suburb of Thornbury.
Photography has been a long time passion of mine. I completed a Diploma in Illustrative Photography – Fine Art/Photojournalism at Photography Studies College in 1998.
My work embodies an appreciation of the beauty and wonder of life that surrounds me. The images in this gallery portray everyday subjects that captivate me, bring me joy or that strike a nostalgic cord. My art tends to be aesthetic in nature and reflects what I find visually and emotionally stirring. For me photography is a meditative process that awakens my senses, induces a sense of inner calm and allows me to completely lose myself in the present moment.
Post production is an important aspect of my art that liberates my creative energy through the exploration of colour, mood and texture. My pieces often take on a painterly affect through the blending of textured layers or are tonally manipulated through the use of cross processing methods.
I currently use photography on a personal level as a means of tapping into my creative energies and finding balance and harmony through its expression.
I am also the founder of Arts in Action. Arts in Action is a film screening initiative that presents local and international art documentary films which focus on creating social change. Arts in Action presents films that document the work of art and video activists, photo philanthropists, videographers, street, and other artists whose work ?makes a difference by challenging perceptions and raising awareness of social and environmental issues.
Commercially I am also available for:

Children and family portraiture
