I live & work in the beautiful coastal town of Newcastle, NSW, Australia.
I love writing & have kept diaries for as long as I can remember due to a compelling desire to keep records of my experiences. This act of elucidation has always helped me in sorting my feelings & thoughts, and led to some discoveries of my own.
I notice things. Details. Small and fleeting things, in-between moments, glances, patterns and repetition. Sometimes overwhelming, they keep my brain engaged in playing out scenarios and stories. It’s always been this way for me.
I had hand-me-down cameras in my youth and used them to record moments in time, unpretty, doco-style shots. Pictures of friends. Of family. Of excursions. Of every page of my little brother’s ‘Kiss’ (the band) calendar as he proudly holds it for me. I still have albums of these average-but-treasured photos. They are my books of younger-me memories.
Then just over a decade ago, my life changed. I had a child, escalating my innate desire to record, to document, to capture not just images but the emotions within them, behind them. The truth and the beauty of it.
Which lands us here.
People, connection, nature, landscape & light are my fascination. I love capturing those elusive ‘in-between’ moments that allude to a bigger human story. And I’m in love with the natural world.
I hope to share the beauty that I see, in the way that I see it.
