Street Life in South and South East Asia - Photography Book

Photo:  Varanasi, India, 2018

A photographic journey through the streets of India, North and South Vietnam and Cambodia. Taken entirely on an iphone 5, these images are raw and spontaneous snapshots of everyday life, depicting the people and culture of lesser travelled places. These photographs were intended to represent the transitory nature of life, a fleeting moment that can never be replicated.

New Poetry Book - Curved Lines

I'm excited to announce my first book of published poetry, Curved Lines. This book is a selection of poetry lived and written over several years. Deeply personal, it examines the human condition through the inner workings of my emotional life.  These poems came about during times of self reflection and explore both the dark and light aspects of my experiences.  More information can be found via this link.

Self Portraiture

Upcoming group exhibition Self Portraiture, Brunswick Street Gallery, 8 July - 21 August, 2016.
"Many women go through their life feeling self conscious about their body image. This painting is a celebration of self acceptance and for being beautiful as a woman. Loving yourself for who you are is a sign of strength and empowerment. The French have a saying 'bien dans sa peau' which loosely translates to 'comfortable in your own skin'. At 46 I can finally accept myself for who I am, without pretence or self consciousness."
