Moving beyond the realm of simple photography, I create surreal, whimsical and fantastical works of Digital Art, often capturing emotion and moments in time along with symbolism to explore reality on a slightly different level.
Born in Melbourne and living there my whole life, surrounded by a vibrant and exciting art community. While not classically trained, I am mostly self-taught with a background in graphic art and design, I have transitioned from more traditional art forms to the digital art medium, often depicting images in my own unique painterly style. Being published both online and in Magazines, I am a regular contributor to Living the Photo Artistic Life Magazine and was featured artist in August 2016 Issue. As an Artistic Coach and Mentor for the Awake Program, as well a member of the Kaizen Project, I thrive on helping and encouraging other emerging digital artists and am widely active and respected throughout the digital artist community.
I still do traditional portraits shoots, but my days are currently filled with Conceptual Fine Art Portraits and workshops…for more info on my upcoming workshops please visit my website;

from 2 Years Ago…
I started this Blog way back in October 2014 [not so long ago really] with an aim to write about my musings on all sorts of things, as well as pics about holidays, work on our amazing gardens, my artwork and photography. But then something happened, I bought a DSLR and started playing and suddenly everything became about my photography. I started doing blogging challenges, and photographic challenges and wanted to learn more, I took a few classes, but mostly I am self-taught, sure I have had a lot of help along the way too. I have met some amazing people through this blog and seen and done some incredible things, but the journey is just starting!
I am creative by nature, I love anything creative, I’m pushy and I usually get what I want. Mostly this blog is about my photography, and my travels, locally and abroad (mostly locally). You can find the most amazing gems within a few miles of home. We love to travel explore and spend weekends driving all over Melbourne and the state of Victoria, finding interesting things to see and of course to Photograph.
I have 2 of the greatest kids, 6 funny quirky animals and an amazing hubby, aka MOTH [Man of the House] who can rarely (not saying never) do wrong!! He has recently acquired a camera as well, so we are both now getting into Photography. I have converted my garage into a small home studio and I do portraits as a means of fun and profit. I specialize in Newborns and Children’s Fantasy Shots. This allows me to buy more gear for my photography and help support our travel.
Beware I am a GEEK, I Love to read, watch movies and TV, mainly anything Sci-Fi or Fantasy. I do love a Rom-Com Movie though! Favorite Authors are Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Terry Goodkind, Anthony Eaton & Sheri Tepper. I thought perhaps one day I would love to write my own……..I have a few thoughts that I have put down, maybe one day I will share them, but honestly I think I am much better at photography than writing a novel. I love Joss Whedon, yes Buffy, Angel and Firefly, also Star Trek – TNG, DS9, & Voyager particularly. Also Star Gate SG1, Farscape and LEXX. I’ll also happily watch daggy stuff too!
So join me and Moth as we explore the world and capture and create precious memories.
