I enjoy painting, drawing, designing and climbing… and I’m pretty handy with computers too.
I have experience in a range of working environments, from small family-run businesses to international corporations. I’m driven, organised and creative with experience in administration, customer service, web design, and marketing & PR.
I have a degree in Television Production from Bournemouth University, although my heart ultimately lies in photography and design. I also have A Levels in Art & Design, English Literature & Language, Film Studies and Media Studies, and a GCSE in Graphic Design.
Computers play a large part in my life. I like to take them apart and put them back together. I learn new software quickly. I primarily use PCs with Windows but for several years through college and university I used Apple Macs for film editing. I use XHTML and CSS for building websites and I code by hand in notepad.
All the photographs displayed on this website are taken with point and shoot cameras. I feel I’m finally at a level where I am comfortable to shell out several hundred pounds on a DSLR. Watch this space for bigger and better photos with a manual focus! I’m excited to experiment with shiny new glass and pretty DOF effects.
I have been painting since I was born. I’ve been very privileged to grow up in a household where art materials were high in abundance and of professional quality. Although talent and technical skill are important, along with colour theory and an accurate portrayal of light, I do believe using the incorrect material can hold back a potential artist a great deal. I usually work with acrylics – I live in a rented flat with cream carpets so I find acrylics are safer for me! I enjoy sketching a lot, so don’t be shy if I scrutinise your face for a doodle.
If you have any questions, or are interested in purchasing any prints of photos or original artwork, please contact me.
