I am compelled to capture the  portraits of people who desire  transformation, I have been there too. I seek narratives of survival and  resilience. Exploring the stories of  those who grow. I am drawn to those who build a new life and embrace change,a portrait should reach beyond the surface to be poignant. There is a tender beauty in  this vulnerability. Photography a is poetic force to create stories, with an element of magic in how people reveal their inner feelings.

My approach is research based and I enjoy immersing myself on extended projects with both digital and film cameras and invite participants to write their stories down and collaborate upon how they are represented. I work commercially for companies  including the NHS and believe art can provoke new thinking and be an agent of change.

 Available for further commissions and residencies, I won the BJP Portrait of Britain 2019.
