Look for Beauty in the Ordinary and the World Becomes Amazing!

It's fair to say my journey hasn't been an easy one, my first love was food and I trained as chef in classical french cuisine,which satified my creativity.I was busy running a business which was to be the start of my empire when a blow came and I was injured in a head on train crash. This left me with injuries that meant I no longer had the stamina to spend long hours in the kitchen.I tried exploring different artistic possibilites to satisfy my creativity and it took a long time to find a medium that suits me.Falling into photography from the art world I have truly found my medium.I now balance my teaching role with my own practice and love each element.

Originally I just stumbled across photography when walking a friends dog.We were out walking early mornings and evenings, which I now now are golden hours for anyone with a camera.As we walked, I started to notice my surroundings more and more.Taking shots on my phone I realised this was something I could do.I bought my first DSLR, and within 3 months of having a camera I was invited to exhibit with other artists and then placed for International garden photographer of the year with my image bothering buttercups.

I simply decided to ride the wave and see where it took me.What a journey!! of exhibitions and working in the industry,teaching,shooting and experimenting.I have fallen in love with the medium of photography and I am on a lifelong quest to find my meaning through this fascinating art form.
