As a child amongst nature I found a land full of magic lit with incredible peace and sheer joy. I found a place of belonging where there is no judgement, no pressure, no time limits and without realising it a place where the rest of the world falls gently into perspective. This ‘communing’ with nature has continued into my adult life and I spend time every day amongst the flora and fauna that surrounds where I live in Perthshire – either just being amongst it, or studying it and when the time and the light is right – photographing it.
I am currently working on My Big Bee Project – I have been photographing Bumblebees over the last three years and am still photographing them. I am a member of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and have pledged to make a twice yearly donation to the Trust – based on a percentage of my sales of my work.
I am also working on including organic textures (photographed by me) into my flower images.
Plus I am working on incorporating Swaroskvi Crystals into my Bee images picking out their beautiful wings with hand placed Swaroskvi Crystals this current work is called Crystal Bees!
And finally I have discovered Diamond Dust and am using this to pick out the heart of my Textured Flowers… current work in this is called Diamond Dust Flowers.
All work can be seen on my website under Galleries.
