Summer Holidays and New Work – it’s sizzling!


Just returned home from a most amazing break spent at The Lizard in Cornwall.

Watching the ebb and flow of life in such …

Opaque ? peeling away the layers in the landscape.


As an artist inspired by the landscape I am especially interested in capturing images that are often overlooked because they are hidden by a veil of overwhelming information that is beyond the vision and comprehension of the human eye. The landscape is overwhelming for me and my way of honing in on the detail is …

Security- photo challenge


I love the sea and to watch the tide ebb and flow, see the waves crashing against the rocks, watch as the storm approaches churning the waves, contemplate the tranquil ripples of a calm swell. I do however have a hidden fear of the waves reaching beyond the safety of the ancient cliffs and man …
