I am a self-employed photographer and mixed media artist. I worked for many years photographing weddings and portraits, but have recently discovered a real love of nature photography and turning my images into fine art. I am a self-taught artist who very much enjoys creating texture, using acrylics and moulding mediums, recycled and printed papers, beads, and natural elements like leaves and pebbles. I love to 'upcycle' as much as possible. I also love the fusion of my photographs and collage art together on canvas. My craft is my passion - I couldn't imagine, or bear, not being able to indulge in it.
