I studied History of Art, Design and Film at Sheffield Hallam University and completed a Masters degree in the History of Venetian Art at Warwick University. Photography has been a passion for many years; my camera is always at my side, and I am currently doing a course in digital photography with the Open University. Living in Sheffield, on the edge of the Peak District, provides plenty of inspiration for my photographic practice, especially during the past year when travel has been so curtailed. I love colour above all and try to find small pockets of beauty in the most mundane of places. My work is informed by John Ruskin’s methodology which includes active looking, recording, attention to detail and his love of nature and architecture.
