First of all, thanks for visiting my website and reading my blog – I hope that you will find something that appeals to you.
A bit about me…… In late 2007 I bought my first digital SLR camera (okay, I am a Nikon girl – there I said it) and a copy of Photoshop and set about learning how to use them both. This, as a none technically minded person, was a HUGE learning curve but I decided to climb it and I have to say that I have never looked back and this wonderful world of discovery still continues…….
I feel that I have an artists eye and I have loved drawing and painting for as long as I can remember and discovering digital photography has broardened my artistic horizons – (to be honest, I haven’t drawn or painted conventionally since 2007 when I bought my camera). I enjoy the freedom the camera brings to my world and I can do more with a pixel than I could do with a paintbrush. I organise workshops and tutorials (small groups or on a one to one own basis) and encourage people to push their own personal boundaries – whether it’s learning a new Photoshop technique, applying and using textures, painting digitally or even photographing fine art nudes, this aspect of my photographic life makes me very happy.
So, to sum up, I really enjoy blurring the boundaries of where painting and photography meet and lots of my images have a definite painterly feel – it really makes me happy if people can’t tell whether, what they are looking at, is a painting or a photograph … if they can’t I know I have succeeded :-)
I am an Associate Of The Royal Photographic Society and have gained many awards (including Gold medals and Best Of Show ) in International and U.K. Exhibitions and Competitions.
