About

I’m a self-taught creative photographer and artist based in the UK. I live with disability and illness and in the past completed a PhD in psychology.

 

I enjoy the mindful and cathartic joy of all creating and am a process-driven and reflexive artist who thinks deeply about concepts and embodied experiences and how they can feed into my art.

I’ve taken a particular interest in the alternative photography process of making anthotype prints this year. Anthotypes are created by exposing plant-dye coated materials (such as paper) to UV light. I love how the creative process evokes the slowness of the earth’s rhythms and uses sustainable materials as connecting with nature is a meaningful part of my daily life. 

 

I’m currently working on a zine of anthotypes to represent the serenity experienced when watching colourful changing skies during golden hour. This'll be published and available to purchase on World Anthotype Day (20th August 2022).
