photographer, printmaker, artist
I have over 25 years of experience as a professional photographer and printmaker, both commercially having worked for international clients in advertising and design in London, Stockholm and Dubai, and as an artist producing work for personal projects and exhibitions.
Several years ago, I left the busy world behind and settled in Spain. I now concentrate mostly on personal art projects and teaching photography and printmaking courses.
I live in a wonderful place in the countryside which allows me to combine my creative activities with a healthy and holistic lifestyle. When I'm not working on creative projects, I spend my time with our dogs and horses, working in the vegetable garden and fruit orchard, reading, writing and allowing my mind to wander. This is a very special place to be - come and see for yourself!
