What interested you about becoming
– My interest in photography primarily evolved from a desire to paint. I intended to use the photographs to study the subject in greater depth but became so fascinated at how different the world looked through my lens that I fell in love with taking pictures instead. Flowers have always held a particular fascination for me and each one seems to have it's own personality. There is a sensuality to the folds of their petals and a decadence to their colour and texture that no couturier can match. I try to capture this love of form and detail in each picture I produce.
Where do you find inspiration to
make your photographs?
– I am inspired by many things which have their roots in the sensual world. My pictures are a visual recreation of the tastes, smells and textures that excite me.
What do you most like to
– Although I love to play with composition and create a floral dialogue between my subjects there is always a need to look closer, almost to the point of abstraction. In doing so, the tiniest details transform into a landscape and everything takes on a new and exciting meaning.
Who are your favorite photographers?
– I am inspired by so many artists and photographers, notably Joyce Tenneson, Patrick Demarchelier, Imogen Cunningham, Edward Weston, Robert Mapplethorpe and Harold Feinstein.
