Telling yarns and lies…

Hello, I’m a country girl born and bred in Dubbo, NSW Australia. I am a avid photographer of all things Australian. I love the “Aussie Bush” and taking photos of wildlife, nature and farm animals.
Most of my photos are Farm Life in Country NSW.
I am now doing a lot of Pet Photography as well as I have a great affinity with all animals.
I volunteer as a photographer for the RSPCA to help all their animals find a forever home…

Enjoy browsing through my photos…
