My photography is not about the large and loud, the distant and untouchable. It is inspired by hours spent as a child in the garden, sitting on the grass, eye level with the macro-world.
Pebbles and empty snail shells were my furniture, berries and flowers the produce in the greengrocer’s that I ran. I became personally acquainted with the leaves and buds. I didn’t miss their unfurling or fading.
So often the smaller things are overlooked and their beauty is dismissed. Initially I began taking photographs as textural studies for my textile art, but it quickly developed into a way of charting the microcosm around me, of connecting with Nature in all her forms.
