Writer. Photographer. Stylist.

After growing up in a big city I moved to the sea in search of a simpler, slower way of life. Here I began documenting my day-to-day; sharing what life was like on these serpentine shores.

My Philosophy

A Bit About Me

. . .

My philosophy is a slow and simple one.


I believe in living with intention; mindful to the world and the people I share it with. Naturally (pun intended) this influences both my lifestyle choices and the work I do. Both in focus and in practice; in style and design as well as in the logistics of carrying it out.

Day to day I work from a home studio powered by solar energy and heated by hedgerow firewood. I’m conscious of keeping waste to a minimum and buying locally when I can. And ever inspired by the seasons and the natural world, my work will always be organic in aesthetic.

For questions, advice or more details on the services I provide, please feel free to get in touch. I'd love to hear from you.
