I am super excited to announce my latest achievement! Last week, I was awarded my second Fellowship with the BIPP, where I presented my Encaustic range in the 'Visual Arts' category. It was titled 'Equus Freedom', which accurately describes the way I feel when creating these pieces. This ...
I’ve spent many years experimenting with artistic mediums, but I always gravitate back to photography as the catalyst and foundation of my work. The ability to capture a millisecond of our history that would otherwise be missed, and immortalising it with my camera, fills me with a heady elation. I love that I am able to witness these fleeting moments, and once I’ve successfully photographed one, I cannot wait for the next opportunity.
I live in the New Forest, an area in southern England which has one of the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pastureland, heathland, and forest, and where wild horses still roam free. I am thankful for this ever-evolving environment that feeds my creative mind on a daily basis. Nature’s influence impacts the way I work and the images I produce, bringing me a sense of freedom and curiosity that I use to create new work.
My pieces are inspired by the connection I have with horses. Just like people, there are many layers to a horse’s personality, and it takes time to uncover each one. Slowly but surely, with time and after building trust, the horse will allow you to see deeper into its soul. I am fascinated by the different aspects of each horse’s personality, and how my relationship with each horse that I photograph deepens and evolves.
If you have thought about having your equine friend photographed, why not take it another step further, have a one off fine art piece created from beautiful images of your horse.Contact Me

My latest work has featured a lot of encaustic art. My Encaustic series was the first collection where I began to get really creative using alternative materials. I trawled through the thousands of fine art images stored on my archives, and shortlisted images that ...
