About Me

Not long after getting my first real camera I saw the images of Mary Ellen Mark and discovered quickly I was drawn to the genre of street photography and particularly its intersection with documentary and travel photography styles. 

Home is Perth, Western Australia, and I enjoy exploring the culture of its beaches and coastal communities. 

My work focuses on capturing details and moments, emotions and interactions; I aim to create photographs that pose a question which remains unanswered in the fleeting moment it takes to capture the image.

In my spare time I volunteer with the Perth based Shutterpaws Volunteer Photography group. We photograph rescue animals to help with their successful rehoming.

My Work

With Australian street photographer Julia Coddington, we have founded the "Unexposed Collective", an online platform for active and emerging Australian women and non-binary street photographers. Unexposed Collective is on Facebook Unexposed Collective, and Instagram @unexp_collective

In May 2019 we curated and hosted our inaugural exhibition "Exposed", as a featured artist in the Head On Photo Festival in Sydney, Australia. Over 60 Australian women and NB street photographers were included in our exhibition.

I actively engage with the international street photography group  @womeninstreet and I am a co-curator of their instagram gallery. I am listed on their great online World Map of Women Street Photographers.

In April 2019, my Pink Lady in Paris image was selected as a finalist in the Italian Street Photography Festival single image competition, and was included in their festival exhibition in Rome.

With this same image, I was a selected photographer in dotart Short Street Stories,  chosen for exhibition at Trieste Photo days in Italy October 2019, and for publication in the 2019 edition of their book.

In 2018, I was named a "selected photographer" with two images chosen in the 2018 dotART Urban Photo Awards and my image taken at Cottesloe Beach named in the winners list in the Urban Art Section. This photograph was selected to be exhibited in Trieste Photo Days Festival 2018 and for inclusion in the Urban Art photo book "Urban Unveils the City and its Secrets Vol 4".

In 2018 one of my images was selected for the inaugural Women Street Photographers Exhibition in New York, along with 74 other awesome women street photographers.
