“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
— Elliott Erwitt
I love exploring the world around me as I capture time and light. My intention is to spark interest and appreciation of what sometimes goes unnoticed in this distracted world.
I have flirted with many genres over the years but night photography remains my passion. There is so much beauty in a night image and the technique of capturing one can be challenging but very rewarding. Night photography can turn a mundane location into a dramatic and interesting image. The camera allows us to see what our eyes cannot and when artificial lights and nature meet - it's magic. The art of Night Photography requires commitment and it is a process which I love doing it.
Black and white photography is another favourite and this genre has fascinated me since I was a kid growing up in the sixties. Looking through old black and white family photos took me to another realm. These images are naturally emotive, nostalgic and they have a soul. Walt Whitman once said, “What I like about black and white photographs is that they’re more like reading the book than seeing the movie.” I agree.
Most of my images are in and around Brisbane where I am based but some are also from my travels. I hope you enjoy scrolling through them. To buy a print, click on the image in my portfolio.

I am very proud of my achievements - the ones that have helped me grow into the person I am today. In 2012 my husband gave me an entry-level DSLR and this was the beginning of my journey.
At the age of 51, I embarked on a quest to take my photography seriously and to become more than just the family photographer. I put in hours of reading, tutorials, workshops, podcasts and practise. That led me on a wonderful journey of creativity, exploration and opportunities I never thought possible. Click on this link to see some of my achievements.
