I was a commercial photographer for decades then put the camera down in 2000. Took it back up last year and delight in using digital manipulation to create art with layers of meaning. Last year my work appeared in three group exhibitions in US - Texas, San Francisco (where I won a gold medal at the San Francisco International Photo Awards) and Carmel. I was a finalist in the New York Center for Photographic Art Competition and also appeared in two exhibitions in Europe. This year I have a solo show in Melbourne, Vital Signs, and am a finalist in the National Portrait Gallery's Photographic Prize, Living Memories.
