About

I am a photographer, creative artist and qualified teacher & tutor based in Stockport. I believe that creative practice is a deep expression of oneself. My personal practice is to work to explore experiences and emotions; confronting their poignancy and learning their positive message. I use photography to record the world around me; the nature and beauty of things and life. My work also aims to enhance awareness of and communicate important personal and social issues.

These themes I develop through working with young people, families and communities. I also collaborate as a freelancer with other creatives and organisations interested in using the creative arts as a tool to explore personal and social issues.

Addtionally I practice and teach various martial arts and am currently developing a self defence system to suit all, especially women.
