is a British photographer.
On leaving high school she studied for a BTEC in Photography, which then led her to study for a BA in Photographic Art at the University of Wales, Newport. Initially she thought that she wanted to be a fashion photographer, but then she started to make the work that she really wanted to make – work that was more personal. Shehe graduated in 2010 with a self portraiture project that explored a personal phase that she went through in her second year of the course. From there a positive response (and a prize commission) gave her the confidence to produce further series, which in the making and exhibiting process have helped her overcome personal hurdles.
In December 2014 she completed an MA in Photography at the London College of Communication. During the course, her interest in video grew and for her final show she presented a video project, Your Dedication Worries Me A Little, as well as a photographic series, Covering The Carpet. In 2013 she self-published her first book.
