My Harena Now series is made with sand, seawater and sunlight. These vivid, non-documentary images meld camera-less processes with digital techniques to raise awareness of a lesser-known environmental and humanitarian issue, the global sand crisis.

I live in Cornwall, UK, taking inspiration for my work from my coastal and rural surroundings.

I want my work to spark conversation about our diverse environments and our impact on them.

My work is predominantly created with alternative photographic processes, and I aim to use the least environmentally toxic photographic techniques to minimise my own photographic footprint.

Find out more about me, and my on-going series Harena Now, which relates to the global sand crisis, via my website.

I gained a distinction in my MA in Photography in September 2018 via Falmouth University, with other personal highlights including:
