I was born in Melbourne, Australia where I still live today. A mother of two, a passionate photographer and an Educator. With a background in Visual Arts, I did not truly discover photography as a need to express the world around me until the sudden death of my mum in 2013. Realising the permanence photography has with a strong desire to record my family, I began focusing on the family home I grew up in and creating more memories.
My first project ‘Family Heirlooms’ was born in 2019. As my dad’s health began to deteriorate, my second project ‘That Place He Goes’ became a way to record moments of dad’s life. Both projects naturally weave two stories together with the second, however, ongoing and documenting dad’s Dementia and Alzheimers journey.
As a photographer, I aim to create honest, tender, raw and intimate photographs. Created from a place of love, respect and the need to tell another’s story.
