Pinhole Impressions was an experiment with a pinhole camera in 2007. Two sets of images were created. The Beach Series, from Andalucia, in Spain. And a portfolio of monochrome images taken at RHS Wisley, which was exhibited at Kew in 2008 as part of The Garden Photographer of the Year competition.
Exhibited at the Garden Photographer of the Year Exhibition at Kew in 2009, this series captured portraits of well know gardeners and tv presenters through their hands.
The title, “Welcome to Heaven’ is taken from graffiti found at the top of one of the derelict tower blocks, in what was the Urban Forest at Elephant and Castle. It is an archive of various features between 2010-2015, documenting guerrilla gardeners, volunteer groups, charities and individual gardeners in their own unique spaces.
Started in 2004, an on-going series of observations from Andalucia or The Coast of Light, Spain.
From the Oxford English Dictionary; “Wilding or Wildling….a plant sown by natural agency”. A series of plants growing in unexpected urban locations which was exhibited at Oxford House in 2013 as a group project, with presenter and writer, Alys Fowler and artist, Lynn Keddie.
This portfolio is a record of some of the 500 trees that could be lost in the planned A3 and M25 junction development near Wisley. Many are rare, and with some as old as 250 years, their removal would be a significant loss. Images have been selected to show the range of specimens under threat, endangered or otherwise, from Giant Redwoods to less obvious and much smaller species.
An on-going project with observations from the River Thames and River Brent. This will form part of a series of images, alongside artists Liz Charsley-Jory and Caroline Underwood, which we hope to exhibit in 2018.
