{ About Me }
I am a photographer, a writer, a seeker of whimsy, wisdom and beauty in the everyday. I aim to live from my heart, not my head, and look beyond the surface of life.

From the otherworldly landscape of a flower seen through my macro lens, to the beauty of a tree stump, to a surprisingly profound piece of graffiti scrawled on the wall of a bus, I point my lens at whatever captures my heart.

I lived in England, Scotland, West Coast USA and Canada from 1999 to 2008. I call Melbourne, Australia home for now.
