I am a photographer and designer. I have an MA in Photography and have travelled and exhibited my photographs from as far afield as the National Art Museum of Beijing in China to the Glasgow Concert Hall in Scotland to the Brittany Tourist Information Centre in Paris plus lots of places in between! I am originally from the UK and was brought up in London but now live in the beautiful Cognac region of France. I love design as much as I love photography and I find that creating fine art greeting cards is a perfect marriage of the two. I do hope you find something you really like in my shop but feel free to send me a message if you would like a custom item or just want to ask a question. Thanks for visiting!
