  • Biography
I am an artist and writer. I use digital photography, a digital pen and words to tell stories. My stories are about landscapes, animals, trees and people and how they connect with each other. The stories in my photographs, collages, poems and flash fiction reflect my way of seeing and you might see things quite differently. I hope, however, that my way of seeing will challenge you to look more closely at what you see when you are at home or out and about. I believe if we begin to change our way of seeing we will become better aware of issues that need addressing. It is important to remember that we, either individually or as part of a collective, have the power to contribute to making the world a better place for all, people, animals, plants and the earth. I am aiming to contribute to this worthwhile project through my artwork and writing.

I do not hold formal degrees in art disciplines but have acquired my skills through self-study and in person short courses and workshops and online courses.
