Australian Fine Art Photographer, Dip of Fine Arts (Photography), whose work is inspired by a love of nature and the abstract.
My photographs concentrate on the light, lines, colour, shape and form found in nature…… from bushland to beaches, even my own backyard.
I hope to surprise and intrigue the viewer with my work and explore the notion that beauty exists everywhere…in the right light!

Thank you for visiting my gallery.

    i’m speechless.
    this is… amazing… and haunting in its exquisite beauty. the lore of selkies have long fascinated me and this is all things mermaid, bewitching… and darkly sublime.

  • You’re comment put a huge smile on my face this morning Holly, I can’t thank you enough. I saw a little Irish film many years ago called ‘The Secret of Roan Inish’ about the folklore of the Selkies, it was magical and has always stayed with me. This is my little interpretation. I wanted it to look like a chance encounter with one, just a glimpse as she swam by…..
