'I'm using photography and the photographic process as a tool for creating colour and shapes.'

Born in Leamington Spa*, I moved to London in 1973, studied art at London College of Printing, BA Communication Design at NELP and postgraduate filmmaking at Middlesex University.   I went on to work as a film/tv camerawoman. 

I began experimenting with abstract photography in 2006 and since then the work has been used in diverse projects ranging from interior design installations in the USA to pattern design for chinaware in Hong Kong and a backlit feature wall in London's Fetter Lane.

The works shown here are mostly non representational photographs - that is they are not images of some thing, they are the thing.  Created partly with analogue and partly with digital processes, I use film, digital and mobile phone cameras, scanners, photocopiers, digital darkroom software and occasionally a pencil to create patterns and shapes, almost like a form of drawing. This is photographic work which focuses on light and the abstract ... I'm looking for that moment when light and colour become shape and form.
