Mount Martha VIC
Until now, I called myself the ‘constipated photographer’ because my life long passion for photography was more like an obsession, clogging up memory cards, hard drives and book cases.
My inspiration comes from the ocean, all things beachy, crazy flowers, peoples faces, life in the snow and majestic trees. Nature throws so much beauty at us and when the landscape is so spectacular, so breathtaking, often a photo does not do it justice. So instead, what I try to do is look beyond the beauty and towards the ordinary and hopefully capture something interesting and unique from the picture perfect scene in front of me.
I want to take beautiful photographs that make their way to your home.
I have 24,466 photos on my iphone! I have 3 external hard drives filled with a gazillion digital images from my beloved Canon SLR. I have cupboard’s filled with boxes of photos and shelves filled with photo albums. You could say I am a bit obsessed!
I have been taking photos for as long as I can remember. My brother loved photography and as kids we were really lucky when Dad built us a Dark Room in the shed. Growing up in Whyalla, that made us pretty cool! I recall the feeling of anticipation and mystery as the image would magically reveal itself across the paper. It’s a childhood memory I cherish greatly.
I am the friend who would annoy you with my camera as I easily shot through a roll of film a day when we went on holidays – 36 not 24! I would wait impatiently for the 7 days to pass for the film to be processed and then pay extra for the ‘Express’ service, still with a 3 day turnaround.
I now live on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula with my husband and 2 daughters and 2 dogs. I am blessed to be able to touch the sand and get my feet wet at our local beach every day. You will see a lot of this beach in many of my photos.
I had been procrastinating with this next step for too many years and was full of ideas – but literally no outlet! I am so very grateful for my friends and family who have encouraged me and nudged me to ‘Jump’ and go public. For giving me the confidence to show my wares and strut my stuff as it were.
I launched my Photographic Art business in 2019 and commenced my Advanced Diploma of Photography 12 months ago. I love learning, experimenting and creating. I am learning to find my artistic voice while allowing myself to get out of my comfort zone and explore new directions. There is something very liberating about trusting ones instinct and silencing the inner critic and I am really excited to go with the creative ‘flow’ and see where it takes me. I will always use photography as the foundation for my artistic process, while at the same time being open and adventurous with new mediums to add layers and interest to my work. I am so thrilled to be able to share some of my popular pieces and also introducing you to my future projects and themes.
So thank you for having a ‘squizz’ and maybe even considering putting one of my images on your wall. If you do – go BIG. They look fabulous Big.
