I am a photographer based in the North-East of England, who has studied and had a passion for art, especially photography all my life. I have done numerous GCSEs, AS and A levels to support my love for art, which has led me to study Photography at University.
I have just finished my teaching course to teach Art and Design at Secondary School. I think Art and Design and Design and Technology are subjects that fundamentally allows a child to express and learn about themselves as a person and as an entrepreneur. I want to give the same passion I received from my tutors and pass that down to the children of tomorrow.
My photography is based around flora as I have always been fascinated with the colours, textures and patterns of flora and wanted to show this in my work. I enjoy macro photography especially with flora but in my spare time I also like to take imagery of fauna and landscapes. I have always had a soft spot for nature and just being able to embrace what is around me to be able to sit and forget any negativity and to just enjoy, I feel that this is one of the many reasons why I enjoy photography so much, I forget about everything else and focus on the here and now.
