I live in Cornwall, UK, taking inspiration for my work from my coastal and rural surroundings.
I predominantly work with alternative photographic processes, aiming to use the least environmentally toxic photographic techniques to minimise my own photographic footprint.
I want my work to spark conversation about our diverse environments and our impact on them.
I am always keen to collaborate or respond to commissions. Do please get in touch to discuss any potential opportunities.
In September 2018, I gained a distinction in my MA in Photography with Falmouth University.
