MOST RECENT

I love how wonderfully connected the world can be at timesโ€ฆ Earlier this year I took part in the exhibition โ€œBeneath the Surfaceโ€ in Orlando, Florida USA. A curator from Italy saw our exhibition in the USA and invited a selection of our pieces to be part of an exhibition in Paris, France!
๐Ÿ’œ
Inspired by Jacques Prรฉvert's poem Dรฉmons et Merveilles, the upcoming exhibition Ethereal Paris - International Photo Expo will be held in Paris from 11 to 13 May, hosted by @imagenationparis ๐Ÿ’œ

This image has been on my mind a lot for the last few days. I seem to have found new meaning in it... I love that I can find new meaning and stories in older work. It keeps the work alive and relevant for me.

Today would have been my brother's 47th birthday. He passed away in 2013 from a brain tumor. ๐Ÿ’œ

My brother was so brave. In hearing about his fate, he accepted it with great courage. He was satisfied in the belief that he had lived his life to the full and that he was content. I am sure there are very few of us that could say this. A great lesson to be learnt.
๐Ÿ’œ

My brother and I had a complicated relationship. The fact that we are both as stubborn as ever, both born under the Taurus star sign and both with the same Italian blood, it was always going to be a dangerous cocktail. But despite the sparks that flew around between us, I always had so much admiration and love for him. I would do just about anything for him โ€“ and he sure threw a few strange requests my way over the years.
A very emotional image. Every element in this image has special meaning. From the colour of my dress, the prop, how I am holding the prop, the location, the sunset and the 2 birds flying overhead...

Happy Earth Day ๐Ÿ’œ

I love being in beautiful open spaces and immersing myself into the surroundings. We come from the earth. We return to the earth.
๐Ÿ’œ

I created this image after the death of my father and brother during 2013. Death and our mortality was very much on my mind, but I found peace in connecting with nature and knowing this is where we return.

So much excitement, fears, uncertainty, hope, change, and did I already mention excitement? So much on the go and so much to prepare for. ๐Ÿ’œ

In this image I used the symbols of the binoculars and the birds to represent moving forward. ๐Ÿ’œ

As much as I love having my work printed and framed BIG, there is something wonderfully magical and special about "tiny art".
๐Ÿ’œ

Many of us do not have the space or budget to purchase large pieces. This was one of the reasons I was so happy I always included a tiny print size to my limited edition prints.
๐Ÿ’œ

My tiniest print size is 200x200mm (including a 15mm white border) and is available as an edition of 15 ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ’œ

I often get messaged or asked when I do presentation as to how I get my images to look so painterly? This happened recently again when I was contacted by an artist in Brazil who creates wonderful surreal images. I have since updated what I sent to him, so I thought it might be helpful to others to share my thoughts on how I create images that look painterly.
๐Ÿ’œ

I love to create an older vintage mood to my images. Creating images that are painterly, helps to achieve this vintage mood. My mission is that by creating images in a world from a different and older time, one far more whimsical and fairytale than our own, the emotions conveyed are easier to bear.

"Disconnected"
๐Ÿ’œ

The inspiration and emotions behind this image come from a very difficult decision I had to make a few years ago to disconnect from somebody I loved. I made this decision not from a bad place, but from a place that knows that sometimes you just need to let go. That dreams sometimes take us to different places and for the briefest moment, those dreams crossed paths. I specifically used telephones to convey my concept as they are rather symbolic for a number of reasons to the inspiration of this image. ๐Ÿ’œ

"Touching Yesterday"
๐Ÿ’œ

I have always seemed to have a deep connection to the past. For this reason, most of my images come from an older time.
๐Ÿ’œ

This image was created on location at the Waverley Abbey ruins in the UK during my 2014 Europe travels. ๐Ÿ’œ

"Discarded Things"
๐Ÿ’œ
Never underestimate where inspiration can come from. It can come from the deepest darkest depths of sadness, or the happiest and most precious of moments, to the drag of everyday lifeโ€ฆ Like clearing the garden refuse.
๐Ÿ’œ
As I was loading the garden refuse into my truck, I was overcome with emotion by this dried up plant. I was about to discard it, yet it was still so beautiful, providing much inspiration. ๐Ÿ’œ

"Dรฉjร  Vu"
๐Ÿ’œ
"Dรฉjร  vu, from French, literally โ€˜already seenโ€™, is the phenomenon of having the strong sensation that an event or experience currently being experienced has been experienced in the past, regardless of whether it has actually happened."
๐Ÿ’œ

I have been here before. Not physically here, but here in emotion. ๐Ÿ’œ

Emotions can be a powerful source of inspiration. Do not be afraid to reach to your emotions and to let them guide you to express them and to be inspired by them. Creating is healing.

"Emotional Turmoil"
๐Ÿ’œ
I wanted to capture what it sometimes feels like to express an emotion. Especially the powerful feeling of release and letting go that it provides. I wanted it to be dramatic and filled with a sense of movement that seemed to come from multiple sources. I specifically chose colours and tones that would bring this vision to life. Adding the birds to the scene were to further the sense of movement/shift and release.
๐Ÿ’œ

This image was created on location in a random field along the roadside outside Holcombe in the UK during my 2016 Europe travels.

"Healing Powers" ๐Ÿ’œ

From my 2014 collection...
I created this image on my father's birthday and felt so incredibly moved and close to him that day. I am always grateful for the medium of expression and to create images that are powerful to me. ๐Ÿ’œ

"Warm Winds" ๐Ÿ’œ

It is very windy here in my part of Cape Town today. We are all on the edge of our seats here, hoping for the big rain we have been promised for later this evening. They say warm winds brings change. We are hoping the wind today will bring the much needed rain to carry us through this drought to winter โ˜”๏ธ Read further on my website/blog. Link in my profile...
