Someone once told me that the word ‘Author’ means ‘one who creates,’ so I would like to think of myself as an Author in every sense. I have numerous creative hobbies. I find solace in creativity. This can be creating an image myself or sharing one I have captured on camera.
Please see my journal for latest updates and some of my thoughts and feelings.

PHOTOGRAPHY & ART:
In photography I try to capture a moment, beauty, an idea, a memory or evoke an emotion. I consider myself a loner- people are not always around to see what I see so I allow the camera to harness my views so they can be shared. If I love to look at it then I hope someone else will too.
That said, I’ve found accurate representation isn’t always necessary: with art it isn’t always about what you see it’s what you feel.
I’m fascinated by relationships; personal, emotional, colours, symmetry, reflections, nature, atmosphere, moods, character.
I believe art should give a voice to the soul and emotion. In a time where commercialisation, money, cruelty and pain seem prominent I believe art can sometimes express emotions and views that cannot always be put into words. In trying to make sense of a crazy world sharing these aspects becomes ever more important.
