FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHER
I’ve been working as a professional photographer for over 14 years now. Before that I had a whole other career as a graphic designer and art editor. When my children came along everything changed. Picking up the camera purely to document as a mother, I realised the emotional impact photographs could have when loved ones were in the frame.
I live a quiet life between the southern shores of the Lough Neagh and the River Bann in Northern Ireland with my family. My favourite thing is to walk the overgrown, soggy lanes in wellies with my two dogs, Molly the wheatie and my youngest baby – Scarlett the pug :)
I’m an eternal dreamer and a romantic. Historical dramas, gothic romance novels, art galleries, crumbling castles, rugged landscapes and painterly, soft tones are all daily inspirations.
I am constantly studying light. I could spend hours just watching how the sun flickers between the trees. And how it changes throughout the day and through the seasons. It's a lifelong obsession.
