An emotive self-portrait photographic artist, dabbling in an array of other subjects. Most of my pictures are of self (other subjects occasionally pop up), and all are taken by self. I am not a model, and certainly don’t think I could do it professionally either, but I do use myself in my photos for various reasons. My images aren’t intended to be seen as standard photos, but forms of self-expression since living with a form of high-functioning autism means I find it difficult to express myself in other ways. I have been taking photos since Oct 2010, so am still very new to this. Everything I do has been self-taught. Learning has been a labour of love, and every image created is done so with passion and experimentation.

NOVEMBER 2013: My images are currently invisible due to a big life transition. Please bear with me. Thank you for being patient, and for your support.

UPDATE JANUARY 2014: New projects underway and currently in the process of revamping and reorganising page and photo categories!
