A collection of old bottles in the Dairy Room at Monte Cristo … a beautifully restored historic home at Junee (NSW, Australia). Junee also boasts an amazing licorice and chocolate factory … ! Well worth a visit.

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!
