ABOUT

Photography for me is a way of seeing, exploring and connecting with the world.  Like many of us, I use my camera to record the things I am attracted to and want to remember. My camera accompanies me everywhere, collecting visual jewels and storing my memories of day trips and holidays. I began to reassemble these images in photo collage and I fell in love with the process. I now create digital photomontages, which I exhibit and sell in the form of limited edition fine art prints. My training was in Textile Design at the Royal College of Art

CONTEMPORARY PHOTOMONTAGE ARTIST

Play is at the heart of creativity for me. I play with the photographs I have taken by editing, layering, juxtaposing and combining photographs in order to create new scenes and narratives. Having studied and worked as a textile designer, colour, surface, and structure are integral to my work. I combine them to create poetic images, which maintain a sense of the places that inspired them but also leave space for the imagination.

I work on several photomontages at once allowing each of them to develop in their own way. There is no end-point in mind. Each piece is on it’s own journey, ending at the point where I feel that all elements within it are resolved.  The joyful part of the process for me is discovering what the final image will be.

More recently I have started painting, which is a new experience for me. My photographic work was becoming more abstract and therefore it seems a natural progression. I am focusing on landscape because I recently moved to a more rural location. Follow my progress on instagram and in my blog
