I was born in England and migrated to Australia in 1980. I have had a life long interest in art since I was a child, when I used to draw pictures of my family and friends. I worked as a successful artist in the mid eighties as well as a model. I have always been interested in photography and in 2003 I completed a diploma in professional photography with the New York Institute of Photography. I particularly like taking ‘street photos’ and have great admiration for some past and present greats in that area, ie Robert Doisneau whose quote “There are days when the technique of an aimless stroll – without timetable or destination works like a dream -flushing out pictures from the non-stop urban spectacle” ….. Recently I have begun to explore how photos can bring out a certain emotion or memory and I particularly like the play of light and shadows on objects and the natural phenomenon of clouds, reflections, etc. I love producing a photo that people can enjoy or associate a fleeting memory with and to that part more and more of my work is creating montages that can tell a story without words….
