I amĀ a photographer, illustrator, designer and sketcher, who loves making pictures of all kinds. I first trained as a human geographer – an academic whose work was about understanding people and places. I love snow, ice and cold places. I also love drinking coffee and tea in warm and atmospheric rooms, an almost perfect pair. I love people, and getting to know theirĀ stories and capturing their faces and gestures in pen, ink and through photography.

I work from Castlemaine, Australia, as a photographer (primarily family, children and wedding photography – portfolio), designer (currently at BirdLife Australia) and illustrator (commission-based) and am learning the art of printmaking.

I also love mountains. Here I am, having briefly lent my camera to my husband, climbing rocks in the Grampians, Australia
