From a young age I spent my time drawing, painting and learning to appreciate the beauty of the natural world.

Flowers are my first love and they are my favourite subject to photograph but it’s our unique Australian native flowers, in all their infinite variety, which bring me the most joy. I capture them to show both their strength and their fragility which makes them perfectly adapted to our harsh climate.

I like to spend time developing a photographic project and seeing in which direction it takes me – often in unexpected ways. There is magic in the process of dreaming and thinking of a project, then taking the time to take photographs that make the creative juices flow and bring the project to life.

You’ll find fine art prints of the flowers that inspire these projects in my online shop.
