“Knowing another is endless. The thing to be known grows with the knowing” – Nan Shepherd.

I am inspired by the beauty in details of the natural world and motivated to do better by the ways which we are currently damaging it.

I create images using pinhole cameras which I design and build myself. Images are made directly on photographic film with no digital manipulation. Recently I have been experimenting with masks in the camera to produce layers of colour and texture in my images.

When you look closely the colours and textures in this coastal landscape are a mixture of natural and marine plastic waste. I combine bleach bottle blues, seaweed greens, industrial reds and vibrant lichen yellows in my images as they are combined in the landscape.
