As a freelance writer and photographer, my aim is to combine words and pictures to create engaging and interesting stories.

My personal work is often inspired by a love of food, gardening, travel and the natural world but I love interviewing other people to find out their story and bring it alive for readers, through a business spotlight or a special interest magazine feature.

Years ago, a chance decision led to me completing professional training in cookery and nutrition and my foodie passions stem from these early days. I now blend my skills and creativity to develop and craft recipes and food stories which I complement with food photography to entice and whet appetites. My kitchen garden serves as the source of ingredients and as the subject for my gardening photography and my curiosity means I regularly grow and photograph new and unusual produce.

I am a big fan of natural light photography and try to use it whenever possible to create my images.

I create images for editorial use, to accompany commissioned articles and newly developed recipes and I now have a diverse stock catalogue of travel, food, landscape, and gardening photographs. I regularly supply images for calendars and my photos have been published in a wide range of books, magazines, newspapers, and websites all over the world.
