I am a self-taught Photographic Artist. I have been passionate about photography since I won a camera in a drawing competition when I was 10 years old.
My work is a composite of photography and digitally enhanced photographic art. Most of my images are taken around the area where I live, a small spa town in country Victoria, Australia. They tell a story of life in the natural world, looking in detail at the passing seasons, the ever changing colours and the perfect simplicity of nature.
My work has been exhibited internationally, most recently at “The Story of the Creative” exhibition in Long Island City, New York
I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.
