My journey into photography began with having only 6 photographs from my childhood. No visual record of my life, and as I became a Mother this resonated deeply with me, in that I wanted to ensure my children did not grow up with the same empty legacy. To be seen at all stages of our lives is so important, and photography is one way of doing that. Capturing moments is cliché but it is really what I am all about.
I started my photojournalistic career quite late in life, but it was driven by an earlier emotional need to document. I left a ‘safe” career and jumped into the deep end with a ten year old camera and nothing but my instinct and eye!
I have combined a previous commercial career with a new creative one that I am absolutely passionate about, and it seems to have worked!
