artist’s statement

My work recreates the innocence and mystique of childhood stories. I blend texture and colour adapting or replacing elements using Photoshop to enhance the cinematic feel of photographs and digital art.

Drawing inspiration from fairy tales, history, myth and fantasy I create images evocative of another time and place. My shoots typically take place outdoors using natural locations as atmospheric backdrops. My work is influenced by the pre-Raphaelites and their depictions of sensual beauty.

I create images that draw the viewer into a story that provides an escape from day to day realities. 

The Pre-Raphaelite TALES Series

This series has received honourable mentions in the 14th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards, the 14th Pollux Awards and 2019 ND Awards.

It evokes the work of the pre-Raphaelites celebrating sensual beauty in timeless natural settings

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
