I grew up in a house with no camera. How extraordinary that seems today when everyone is a photographer and often so casually. Our old family photos are mostly blurred because my parents didn't quite get the hang of a borrowed camera. I was given a Brownie 127 when I was eighteen and as many people do, started serious photography when my children were little and enchanting and unconcerned at being photographed. Encouraged by a friend, I learned to develop and print my own work, joined a camera club, then the Royal Photographic Society and went to many workshops and lectures and exhibitions. I was awarded a RPS Fellowship in 1994.

My photographs have been in solo and mixed exhibitions since 1993. Solo venues include The County Museum, Aylesbury,The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford, Girton College, Cambridge, Voies Off show in Arles,France, The Royal Photographic Society. Group exhibitions where I have been shown include The London Salon, London Independent Photography, The RPS Contemporary Group, Edinburgh International Festival.

Most of my work has been with people, either in series such as Girton People, Chesham People, Evacuees of WW2, Household Words or has been using my amiable family and friends in conceptual ventures. I am increasingly interested in book design and production.
