Born in London, taken on a jumbo jet, aged 8 to Auckland New Zealand, I was instantly taken to international travelling. My father taught me photography at 13 and gave me his camera, I just kept shooting photographs.
My degree specialised in analogue photography, I was drawn to narratives and symbolism, via colour photography and collage.
After motherhood and travelling, in 2014 I purchased a new Leica M6 camera which once belonged to a famous photographer, my camera has seen Sarajevo and Rwanda!
Inspired and empowered, I'm off to explore the world and make new art again!
