I have been a professional photographer for over 20 year. After completing my professional studies at City of Westminster College, London, I started my career working in several studios in Central London, learning from exceptional photographers and developing my skills and ideas, which lead onto a career photographing interiors, food, still life and portraiture for Advertising and Design Agencies worldwide. In 2010 I retired from commercial photography to concentrate on developing my art practice and to teach. Having completed a PTTLS in 2010 and a PGDip(ArtEd) in 2016. From 2013-2017 I was Module Leader of Photography at Bellerbys College Oxford, teaching the Foundation and A Level courses and am now Co-ordinator and Teacher of A Level Photography at d’Overbroecks Sixth Form College, Oxford.
Situated in the realm of light based image making, my personal practice focuses on the familiar and unfamiliar in the (often repetitive) daily experiences of life, the physical interactions involved in moving from place to place and internally to places of memory, sensation and the ineffable. I interrogate the material, experiential and perceptual nature of these interactions through a practice of mindfulness, attending to the present moment. I work with both still and time based media looking at how light forms image and exploring the boundaries of what we think of as still or moving image.
