To this self-taught Indonesian photographer, respect and understanding of the environment, it's people and animals, is key to capturing evocative pictures in any location.
Endlessly amazed by both the intricate and simple ways in which nature works, she tries to reflect this in her work, whether it be marine life, land animals, people or landscapes and always looks to reveal some aspect of their behaviour.
Her main passion has always been underwater photography where she particularly enjoys photographing tiny creatures. Nature works wonders by giving such beautiful detail on small creatures and through the macro lens, she unveils their intricate beauty. Her knowledge and understanding gives her the ability to convey the emotion of these creatures.
Her dedication and perseverance has resulted in much success internationally and was capped in 2014 when her 'Passing Giants' photo was announced as the winner of underwater species category from the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition, sponsored by the Natural History Museum London and the BBC.
