I have been passionate about Art & Design for many years as both a maker and educator. My first love was Printmaking, particularly Screen Printing and this developed into a love of Photography. Light is the medium of Photography and I’m fascinated by how images can be created with light through traditional and/or digital processes. This work examines the subject of natural light and its relation to time; cyclical time such as day turning to night or night turning to day as well as seasonal changes. Cyclical time is prior to the Western concept of linear time which constructs a linear trajectory from past, present to future. I explore this duality of time through photography, I engage with the changing moment, which the camera presents as static and isolated from the continuum of our lived experience. I plan to continue my practice for both creative and commercial purposes.
