About

Fine art photography showcasing my various moods and whims.

Born in Toowoomba, Australia in 1979, I received my first camera as a preteen and was fascinated with capturing the details of particular moments in life. This appeal continued through the years as I continued learning and honing my craft. With the advent of Photoshop, I've found new ways to showcase my stylish atmosphere. I moved to San Francisco in 2006, where I now focus on both nature and contemporary society.

As a whole, my work varies in tone and character because it is a reflection of myself and, like everyone else, my moods can run the gamut.

In addition to photography, I make one of a kind accessories & decor.

In a world where fashion is quickly disposable, come the latest trend, and so much is discarded, I wanted to create accessories in an environmentally friendly way.

At the fabric store, I avert my eyes from all the lovely fabric on rolls and head straight to the scrap bins. Piled high with bits and pieces of unwanted leftovers, I can always find a use for them. Lately, my fabrics have come from upholsterers, who generally work with larger pieces of fabric. All those extra bits they can't use, well, I'm happy to take it off their hands! It's amazing just how much fabric would be thrown away otherwise.

Working with smaller fabric pieces often limits the amount of a certain product I can make, BUT it also means you'll receive a one of a kind item! I start with the largest item I can make, incorporating as much of the fabric I can (pockets, embellishments etc), and work my way down to smaller items. By the end, I usually only have to throw away a couple of inches. (Even these bits I try to find a use for)

Hand woven tapestries are my latest crafty endeavor. Like everything else, most of my yarn is purchased from people looking to destash and sell their leftovers. Small bits are tied together, or some other technique will be used to use up the scraps. Basically, I try to minimize waste as much as possible.

I hope you enjoy browsing through my shop!

    Ultimately, it's nothing more than my eye that distinguishes my work from that of others; my specific angle, my individual taste. It's more of a subjective thing than an objective one.
