Her photographs ...

capture the beauty of colour, texture and detail. Narratives are evoked by the human traces evidenced in the images. Elements of decay within the natural and urban landscape are important features of her work as is the underlying geology that informs the environment. Her methodology is underpinned by her study of John Ruskin and the abstract expressionist photographer Aaron Siskind.
