Fine Art Photography + Photos + Beeswax + Pigment = AMAZING!!!

Photographic Fine Art Originals and Prints

If you love colour & texture, & love the tactile nature of printed photographic images, then I think you’re going to just l-o-v-e my fine art works.  Originals and fine art prints available to buy.

A melding of ancient & modern techniques, I encapsulate my images in a beeswax-based medium originating from ancient Egypt & Greece.

I use paints, inks & collage to fuse my photographs in a beautiful patina.  Each piece is created from unique treatments, techniques, &  the outcome is unable to be fully managed or controlled.  Just like original film photography & image developing. You never know just how a work will turn out. Instinctive, inspired, spontaneous, richly layered,  & ethereal.   Fine Art.

Each part of my creativity and life as a photographer and an artist seems to meld when I work in these mediums. Photography & Fine Art together forming something purely original.

For Lovers of Interior Design

I’ve collated photographs of my artworks into a magazine, here, for you to enjoy – there’s something for everyone – portraits, landscape, interiors, abstracts.  Take a look.  If you see an art work that you would love to make your own, please get in touch.

As lavishly as the art pieces photograph, actually touching the gorgeous beeswax patina & looking into the multi-layers of mediums in each piece is truly, truly beautiful.

And just imagine having your contemporary portraits, a more conceptual arty portrait, or a decorative piece featuring something meaningful to you, as your own bespoke original art work.  My photographic images work beautifully when handcrafted into 3 dimensional original one-of-a-kind art works…. Can you tell this is my absolute ideal  creative medium to play with!  A combo of my 2 creative passions!  Originals and fine art prints available to make your own.

Big Family Photography Session – All Together Now!

Extended Family Outdoor Photo Shoot 

Gorgeous extended family photography session on the Gold Coast – walks through the bamboo forest, frisbee on the lawn, meanderings through the garden paths, see-saws & swings.  Oh, & a few images taken in-between!

Three beautiful sisters re-united.  Parents, grandparents, partners, siblings, kiddies, & bubs-to-be!  A fun celebration of family where the newest granddaughter was welcomed home from Canada, & a glowing new mum-to-be embraced with the love only a family can give. So much to celebrate!

A fun relaxed afternoon and amazing photographs to look back on for not only years to come, but to pass on for generation to generation.

Family Photography Session – Meadow Fun! Sneak Peek…

A beautiful afternoon of sunshine, smiles, & exploring grassy paddocks – what a family adventure that doubled as a fun family photography session!

Lots of laughter, fun, & natural beauty on this portrait photoshoot with a delightful & fun-loving family!

I was spoilt with beaming smiles, bright eyes, & happy hearts as this little 5 year old relished exploring “Capaja Meadows” – complete with green pastures, mooing cows, golden afternoon sunshine, & 100 year old restored ploughs.  Such a perfect place of fun & beauty for this family’s photography session.

I can’t wait to show you more of our afternoon adventure!  Thank you “Capaja Meadows” for sharing your magnificence with us!

Newborn photography session at home.

Meet adorable baby Billy in his newborn photography session.
Capturing his beautiful little features, & cuddles with Mum & Dad, at just one week old was an absolute joy.
Such a sleepy, calm little fellow, I was completely spoilt, – just as I was when I captured his big brother & sister frolicking on the beach earlier in the year for their family photography session.

Although Billy’s siblings were at school on the day of our newborn photoshoot, they have each made a cameo in Billy’s video!  After every portrait session, you will see a gorgeous highlight reel of photographs from your session.

Such an honour to be a guest in his parents’ home & capture some lovely images of Billy’s precious first days.
