Ajanta Fur Coat Reversed.png

I live in a beautiful part of the world - Phillip Island or, Millowl which is Boon Wurrung traditional First Nations lands. I feel very privileged and grateful to reside here and there is much scope for photography within the natural environment. I delight in adventuring out to this wonderland of never ending delights and immersing myself in my passions of writing and photography.


To that end, amidst my eclectic box of tricks, I am a poet, a writer, and a photographer. I’m told that I have a good eye and that may be so but what I know is that when I am fully connected with my surroundings - to the land, nature, and the trees - when I feel spiritually at one with all - that is when I take my best photos.


I enjoy taking an eclectic range of photography and immersing myself in the process. I’m also passionate about digitally manipulating and metamorphosing my photos to draw out hidden meanings – always with deep spiritual reverence in their transmutation.


Capturing my photos is a mindful contemplation wherein sometimes I might manipulate them into more abstract digitalised art forms. This process is a ‘bearing witness to all possibilities’ and it enables me to flow single pointedly – as in meditation - with what I create. In this sense, there is a transcendence of everyday reality as I am creating images deep in meaning and yet they are essentially ineffable.  They are best described as a manifest representation of heart ecology – of the spirit merging with the inner and outer worlds and all that is beyond the reach of our senses.
