For the last few years I have been documenting my relationship with the nature and landscape around my home in rural north Dorset using photography. I am self taught photographer, and my images are all created on a shoestring, using cheap vintage lenses often found in charity shops, and a battered and beloved Sony A58. I improvise filters from found objects and experiment to create images that reflect my love of the local woods, fields and chalk streams and the wildlife they are home to. I have found photography to be a meditative and healing practice in an increasingly noisy world and wander with my camera as often as time allows.
Last year I was awarded a bronze medal for a Portfolio of Photography at the RHS London Plant and Art fair 2018. This year I have been delighted to have two winning images in the Abstract Views category of the International Garden Photographer of the Year.
