Close up. Design is in my blood. I drew inspiration from my artistic family and I loved art at school. A creative career and a degree in Graphic Design naturally followed.
My passion has been fuelled by diverse roles in creative media. I take inspiration from photography and illustration and draw on my own life experiences for design ideas. I love the creative process, and thrive on bringing client ideas to life.
Telling the story is hugely important to me and I love seeing the final result in print.
Career. I worked in the newspaper industry for over 18 years in a broad range of roles. I developed skills in advertising design, typesetting, web and print design which allowed me to express myself creatively.
It also led to me where I am today – in an exciting role with the NHS where I can really unleash my creativity for photography, print and web design, and branding.
Photography. It’s been a huge part of my life for many years. Inspired by travel and my career in amateur snooker since the age of 16, I love the creative buzz of capturing the moment and the diversity of photographic genres.
I’ve photographed landscapes across the world. One of my favourite places to capture is Wales and the beauty of Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons.
I’ve also captured and played snooker with the world’s finest including Ronnie O’Sullivan, Stephen Hendry and Jimmy White. In 2013, I did a behind the scenes shoot at the professional Masters tournament.
I’m constantly inspired to push my creative boundaries, diversify and build on my portfolio. I’m currently experimenting more with portraiture which is exciting and fun.
Where you’ll find me. I live in Cornwall with my family and black Labrador, Alfie.
