I am a photographer. It took me a long time to feel I had any right to the title, but it is how I see the world. When I imagined this space where I could share my images, the contemplation allowed me to see that during my life two passions have been a constant thread. 

A passion for photographing. The impulse to capture and savour moments has always been there, boxes of photographs are nearly all I truly believe is worth carrying from decade to decade. I used photography as a teenager and wandering young adult to allow me the joy of remembering, then as a mother to hold onto the now, to freeze time which uncontrollably runs away when nurturing children. During these times my choices and eyes behind the lens developed, and now, as my children begin to find independence I understand the extent to which both photographing and appreciating photography fulfils me. My photographing evolved into being a part of who I am and now is extending into me wanting to witness and comment on the wider stories in the world around me.

The second passion is a call to experience. I approached adulthood with a craving to travel, full of an appetite for other countries and cultures. To see, taste, smell and feel how different lives play out and to meet people who's worlds were nothing like mine.  This inherent wanderlust and curiosity still shapes and motivates my life choices now, although as times have changed and our planets' story has evolved, so has my consciousness shifted and with that has the moments and stories I feel compelled to capture or tell. 

And so here I am...a photographer of places, people and human stories; lifes' colour.  It enriches me and I want to share as I create.
