In 2010 I retired from commercial photography to developing my art practice and to teach. I completed a PTTLS course in 2010 and went on to complete a PGDip(Ed) in 2016. I started my teaching career at Queen Anne's School in Caversham and became Module Leader of Photography at Bellerbys College Oxford, teaching the Foundation and A Level courses from 2011 till 2017. I am now co-ordinator of photography at d'Overbroecks College and am completing an MFA at Oxford Brookes University.
Situated in the realm of light based image making, my personal practice focuses on the familiar and unfamiliar in the (often repetitive) daily experiences of life, particularly the interactions involved in moving from place to place and internally to places of memory, sensation and the ineffable. I explore the material, experiential and perceptual nature of these interactions through a practice of mindfulness, attending to the present moment. I work with both still and time based media through a 'practice as research' approach which looks at light and surface as subject.
