Artist's statement

Growing up in remote country towns, with nothing to do and nowhere to go, I would spend hours creating stories in my head of strong heroines saving the day and following their dreams. When Deel sat in front of my camera she exuded a sense of calm, strength and femininity – everything my heroines growing up would be. I have a passion for shooting strong, inspiring figures in my photography, to conceptualise and create images that celebrate who we are and the beauty that radiates from us all.
