"Hello! I live for the sweet smell of a boarding pass. I have always been an intrepid traveller, visiting places around our globe that few choose to tread.
I am always looking for a photograph that can convey what I see and how I feel about where I am and who I've met. I am continually struck by the warmth and humanity of people, even in the most desolate of circumstances.
I have been obsessed by many things. As a child I drew animals all the time, and I started adult life as a Fine Artist, creating an abundance of wildlife paintings, drawings and sculpture.
12 years of Nursery Teaching allowed me to work with small children on art projects - something I still love to do to this day, especially with the children I know and love in India.
Work, travel and photography. By embracing new technology and turning my skills to web design I was led to a 12 year full time corporate journey, managing the websites and E-Commerce for Molton Brown, the British Museum and Aveda, Estée Lauder Companies.
Curiosity here led me to find out where ingredients in cosmetics come from - and I got myself involved with indigenous cultures and communities in India, Brazil and Australia that supply ingredients - people who I love to photograph.
I have had work published by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), The Australian Sandalwood Company, Mount Romance and have photographed events for Molton Brown, Aveda and many other brands within Estée Lauder Companies."
