I am an artist photographer. Throughout the 1980s, I used photographs as source material for my paintings and installations. When I moved on to computer graphics, I created virtual worlds that relied on photographic images for inspiration as well as textures. And as a student of garden design, I became fascinated by the challenge of photographing plants and gardens. Since that time I have been shooting both digital and film photographs. My current work focuses on Holga photography. Recent projects include The Gardeners of '14for The Lost Gardens of Heligan and 842: A Portrait of St John's for St John's Hospital in Bath.
I love the low fidelity of the Holga, as well as its unpredictability. For me, Holga photographs are like dreams or visions -- places where reality is suspended and the imagination takes over.
My work has been described as 'idyllic' and 'atmospheric, with a lightness of touch'. No matter what the subject matter, my emphasis is on light and mood, and my intention is to create a painterly image that evokes emotion.
