I am a documentary photographer based in the North East of England.
After completing a Postgraduate Diploma in Photojournalism at the London College of Printing, I returned to my north east roots and began working as a Photographic Technician at Durham University. Although this wasn't my dream photographic job, I was pleased to be working in a role which has given me such diverse experience. Occasionally I was fortunate that my role involved some of the documentary photography which I love. Documenting the industrial landscape of Teesside for a research book being one such example.
In what little spare time I had (I had a growing family and a critically ill husband) I continued with my documentary projects. In 2019 I was honoured to be shortlisted in the Sony World Photography's Open Competition. I would love one day to see some of my personal work in print.
