I have been a professional artist for nearly twenty years and my photographic work is heavily influenced by my traditional Fine Art background. Over the years I have accepted private commissions from nearly every state of Australia as well as Internationally for pet portrait paintings in traditional graphite, charcoal, pastels, acrylics, oil painting as well as digital art mediums.
I took my first photograph in 1980, sold my first photographs in 2005 and commenced my career as a Professional horse, pet and child photographer in 2007. I have photographed a diverse range of subjects over the years including equestrian sports, canine sports, children’s sports, pet portraits, childrens and family portraits, landscapes and commercial rural photography. Due to serious family illness, I focused on Fine Art photography for several years before returning to equine Event Photography on a regular basis in 2015 and now once again cover equestrian events disciplines including Showjumping, dressage, eventing, campdrafts, rodeos, show horse, gymkhanas, agricultural shows and breed shows.
I am an independent Accredited PCAWA Photographer with current Working with Children Clearance and Public Liability Insurance available for photography at Pony Club and other equestrian events as well as private, farm, stud and commercial photography sessions.
