    The Exhibition - Water is Life
    The exhibition runs from 1 April to 30 May 2021

    I have always loved the sea and swimming. It makes me feel whole and new. Gives me inspiration and hope. Coldwater wakes up my mind and body.

    Being close to the ocean makes me feel calmer and more creative. It reminds me to be happy each day. Swimming in the sea awakens my desire for adventure and it connects me fully to myself.

    When I see the movement in the water, I want to photograph it. I love to watch people swimming and how they enjoy themselves. I love the different colours that the Ocean can be at different times and all the beautiful reflections.

    Always with Camera at hand ready to capture that moment. In or out of the water. Warm day, cold days its all the same.

    The feeling of freedom and weightlessness. Pure love of the ocean and my love of Photography. They both go hand in hand.

  • Biography

    I started Photographing around the age of 16. It was for me a way to express myself without feeling that i was being judged. I grew up with Dyslexia and didn't learn to read or write until the age of 9 or 10.

    My mother would sit with me each night at the kitchen table pointing at each word in the book, i don't remember how long it took, but finally i got through my first book,”Dr Dolittle”. I think now I'm very happy that it was my first book i read as i love all animals very much.

    Flora and fauna are the subjects that i really love to photograph. Nature and animals are very close to my heart. They are like young children, trusting and open, and need us to be kind to them. They are valuable and do no harm to us.
    I cannot express myself through words or the written word, my Art and Photography are my words.

    I hope my art speaks to people and that they enjoy how i see and feel about the nature world that we live with.
