My story starts at sea.
A perilous voyage to an unknown land. A shipwreck.
The wild waters roar and heave.
The brave vessel is dashed to pieces and all the helpless souls within her drowned.
All, save one.
A lady whose soul is greater than the ocean, and her spirit stronger than the sea's embrace. Not for her a watery end, but a new life beginning on a distant shore.

After the death of my husband, in the face of overwhelming grief, I determined to 'take my broken heart and turn it into art'. Each image speaks to a process that has changed me so completely it has left me unrecognizable even to myself. But I've found, not unique to me, the process of grief will, if you allow it, humble you and show you a new way to be and to hold the capacity to live in two places, here and there.
A selection of these photographs are available in my shop as limited edition fine art prints along with more insight into the motivation behind each image.
