I studied photography & media (moving image) at college and have been working with photography for over 10 years now. In the past i have exhibited my work and set up my own studio & darkroom developing film and images.
My style is constantly developing, but i prefer a more informal, artistic approach. In particular with my portraiture photography, choosing a natural, personal environment over a studio set up.

Alongside this I have become a keen crocheter + knitter, running a number of workshops and selling at markets + online. My crochet & knit designs are simple & fuss free, preferring to work with natural colours & materials. 

More recently I have discovered a love for design and have worked on websites + logos for small businesses.

I run a biannual art, design & craft market with my friend here in Birmingham, called The Paperdolls.

i also write a blog incorporating my love of photography, the arts & crafts & some bits and pieces of our life.

i live with my husband and two girls.
