The world is my canvas, the camera is my brush…
I am a fine art photographer who is captivated by the diversity of cultures and is influenced by people and the themes of everyday life. I am attracted to colour, texture and light and these elements provide a rich backdrop for her subjects.
A photograph has the ability to capture emotion in a fraction of a second. I want my photographs to say something about life and the human condition but also to be visually pleasing. I want to draw the viewer in by telling a story through imagery.
