Exploring textures of found objects during Lockdown life outside and in the garden.
Look at life from a different perspective to find the beauty and harmony of composition, texture and form.
Photography and painting with light became my passion as a teen. I attended the College of Fine Art, University of NSW gaining a Bachelor of Art in 1991, then returned to graduate with a Masters in 2001. While working as a photo-journalist in Sydney for over 15 years (newspapers and magazines), I owned and ran a photography studio, darkroom and gallery, and also a restaurant on the bustling Oxford Street.
My documentation of international parades and festivals over three decades, celebrate the creativity and diversity of life. These are incorporated into exhibitions and have also been transformed into new-media short art-films. My creative works have been presented at festivals held in: San Francisco, Sydney and Hong Kong plus Montreal, Milan, and Moscow, also Rome, Berlin and London. Locally my photography is included in the annual Oxfordshire Artweeks festival and has been exhibited at venues including County Hall, University Church of St Mary, The Jam Factory and Museum of Oxford.
Nikon DSLRs are my personal camera of choice, mainly for their great flexibility at events and I use Mac computers with Lightroom, Aperture and Adobe Creative Suite. I have a fine eye for detail when arranging, shooting, retouching and editing images.
Specialising in event and portraiture photography I also photograph for personal pleasure to produce images that capture a moment that is a joy to live with on the walls of homes and works environments.
