    Bronze in Fine Art/Special Effects

Captivated by its magic, drawn in by its beauty, I follow an endless trail. The spell breaks and I stop. The trees cave in on me…….. The photographs I make are often autobiographical and tell a story. By enhancing them digitally, they are a metaphorical representation of issues I am experiencing.

I was born and raised in London, where I read Pure Mathematics at Bedford College, University of London. My interest in photography began after seeing Robert Mapplethorpe´s controversial exhibition at the ICA. Soon it became my passion. A few years ago I gave up my full-time work to set up my studio as a freelance portrait photographer and have the time to work on my personal photographic project and my BA Photography course. My area of interest, besides portraiture, is staged, narrative and autobiographical, working in panels to convey a story or work through issues.
