I live in the South of France surrounded by hills, forest and river in a house full of animals. Using black and white film and a variety of cameras and analogue methods including pinholes, I create images that are dream-like, evocative and slow, by hand in my darkroom. Sometimes I create with mixed media. My work is filled with imagination and sensitivity – magical landscapes, wild waters and beautiful, elemental beasts.
I gained a BA(Hons) in Fine Art in 2004 and now live and work where the Aude and the Ariège meet, between the sea and the mountains.
“To detach yourself elegantly from the world; to give contour and grace to sadness; a solitude in style; a walk that gives cadence to memories; stepping towards the intangible; with the breath in the trembling margins of things; the past reborn in the overflow of fragrances; the smell, through which we conquer time; the contour of the invisible things; the forms of the immaterial; to deepen yourself in the intangible; to touch the world airborne by smell; aerial dialogue and gliding dissolution; to bathe in your own reflecting fragmentation”
— Emil Cioran, The Book of Delusions 1935
