Since 2000, I have been working as a community photographic artist.
Alongside individuals, artists, groups and organisations, I have created and have been involved in many workshops. I have also documented the work of others. It has been a privilege to listen, and help facilitate other people's ideas and specific experiences. Unfortunately I sense that those wonderful times, when I collaborated with talented, sensitive community artists and participants, are probably over. The covid pandemic has played its part in that.
So I need to concentrate even more on my personal artistic expression, hopefully working towards Oxford Artweeks in May 2022 and then beyond.
I continue to explore 'perception' especially from the viewpoint of the individual who faces a different reality. This plays into other themes such as truth, misunderstandings, disorientation, transition, mystery and a longing for stillness in the mind. I enjoy combining my images with words and poems. The images tend to capture what I can see through my lens. Usually very little editing is done in post -production.

I have exhibited regularly in Oxford and Oxfordshire.
