My practice focuses on identity, place and time.  It is the everyday, the mundane that sparks my interest.  Those quirky rituals that we all employ, each one a trace of our reality, make us independently and collectively who we are.

In 2017, I  graduated with an MA in Photographic Arts from the University of Westminster.  My work is held in private collections and has been exhibited in group shows in the UK and a solo show in Switzerland.  My personal long-term project entitled, ‘The Winds of Change’ documents daily life on a large family owned farming estate in the wastes of Lancashire.  The land has passed down the same bloodline since 1195.  The owner is in his 90s.  Generations of tenants live on the land.  Recently, some of the cottages have been renovated for newcomers who do not farm.  Stability is something I crave but even in the most secure of environments, nothing is certain.
