CREATIVEEM:
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.

ACHIEVEMENTS:

I was one of the finalists in the 2006 Open Arts Competition, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. My work was displayed at the South Holland Centre, Spalding, England

I was named ‘Artist of the Day’ in the Local Critter Group on 11/06/2014

My photo ‘The Wedding Pail’ came within the Top 10 for the June Wedding competition 2014 held by the ‘You Got it, We want it Group’

My ‘Jump in The Puddles’ came in the Top 10 of a competition held in October 2014.

My Birmingham bus image came in the Top 10 of a competition held by ‘The Best of British’ Group in March 2015.

I have been lucky enough to have numerous features in groups as you can see from the banners below:

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.

Thank you for stopping by to look at my work – I hope you find something that makes you smile, makes you feel peaceful or just makes you think about something in a different way.
