I am a photographer based in the UK. My background is in Fine Art painting and Social Policy, and for the last 15 years I have run my own Psycotherapy practice. In 2014 I have been the recipient of the New York Photo Awards and the Lens Culture Emerging Photographers Award, and a Finalist in the Taylor Wessing National Portrait Prize 2014 amongst others.
I am currently studying for an MA in photography at Plymouth University with Jem Southam and David Chandler.
My work has been exhibited and published internationally in the UK, China, Spain and USA
