Born in Bateman's Bay, NSW Australia 

I am a freelance photographer. My passion started when I received a Nikon for my birthday from my husband many years ago.


 During one of my first photography lessons a mentor told me, "this craft is less about what you see and more about how you see it". Years later after spending a large part of my life living in some of the most volatile - also some of the most beautiful areas of Papua New Guinea, I understood this with far more clarity.


My work is the result of a curious mind, a love for food, family, nature, undiscovered places and exploited places viewed with fresh perspective.
