I am a self-taught fine art photographer and digital artist. I live near the small mineral spa town of Daylesford in Central Victoria, Australia, with my husband, our Newfoundland/Lab Ralph, and Sushi, the lovely black and white kitten we rescued from the highway a while ago. According to one British journalist, Daylesford is “the funkiest small town in the world” ... I’m not so sure about that, but the chocolate shop in town is definitely worth a visit!
I have been passionate about photography since I won my first camera, a Kodak Instamatic, in a drawing competition when I was 10 years old. That was replaced long ago and I’m now totally smitten with my Canon EOS 450D DSLR. I also use an old favourite, my Panasonic Lumix FZ20, for quick shots, it was my first digital camera and I love the clarity of its Leica lens.
My work is a composite of pure photography and digitally enhanced photographic art. My images tell a story of life in the natural world, looking in detail at the passing seasons and ever changing colours and the perfect simplicity of nature. Most of my images evolve from the countryside around where I live. I never run out of subjects, there is beauty in every blade of grass if you look for it.
My husband says that I live and breath art and he wouldn’t have it any other way. 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 tools 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.
Thank you for dropping by and I hope you enjoy my work ...
