Hello there. 
Nice to meet you. 

I'm an Australian-born artist living on a 2x4 square mile island 90 miles north of Cuba.

I make photos with film . . . the medium that connects to my deepest expression. Alternative processes, the immediacy of instant pictures, expired film & experimentation are all part of my creative process. 

The glow of skin, intimate landscapes & flora, secluded details in the unknown . . . I am drawn to the hidden beauty in things. 

There are no official qualifications to tell you about . . . I am self-taught & reveal what speaks to my heart through my images.

Here is where I share my creative journey with you.
