I was born and raised 100km west of Melbourne, in Ballarat a19th century gold rush town and grew up in a household full of arts and crafts (padded tissue boxes that gave way to elegant and sophisticated embroidery from my mother and functional and solid woodwork from my father)
A passion for all things creative guided me through childhood and in high school, I explored the worlds of art, Drama and that is where (with the help of being given my fathers camera) I discovered photography.
I received a Bachelor of illustrative photography from Royal Melbourne Institute of technology in 2000 and then as the world of photography changed from analogue to digital I decided I needed to continue my education and in two 2003 received a masters of Multimedia Design.
My work has always been a combination of elements with photographs being the base and moving up from there with many layers of texture and text, all to create something I find beautiful.
