East Midlands based fine art photographer/creative practitioner.

After gaining an undergraduate degree at University College Falmouth in 2008 I have worked extensively as a freelance artist and educator. I'm motivated to investigate my surroundings through photography. Current practice/research interests are portraiture, landscape and the way that these photographic styles can be utilised to unpick and document communities. I am currently undertaking the delivery of large scale project work, primarily in schools, leading analogue photography workshops which utilise mindfulness techniques and approaches that are part of larger programmes of mindfulness activities aimed at young people between the ages of 3-18.
