I am a photographic artist living in Orkney. This site is a space to show my photographs from past projects or upcoming ones. Previous exhibitions, projects & portfolios can be viewed in the pages listed above. Most of the work is for sale, it is often single edition. Commissions are welcome too. Please get in touch if you would like further information.

I grew up in the highlands overlooking the Beauly Firth. While at school I set up a darkroom in my bedroom. My first camera was a Nikkormat from my Grandfather. Later I was fortunate enough to be given my Great Uncle’s Mamiya medium format, I still use that camera.

I studied photography at Napier University in Edinburgh, graduating in 1992.

In 2007 I moved to Orkney with my husband, filmmaker Mark Jenkins, when I undertook the ‘Art & Agriculture’ residency with the Pier Arts Centre.

In Orkney I have been teaching photography and working with the photographic archive of Gunnie Moberg. Recent projects have included the medicinal flora of Orkney and an ongoing fascination with seaweed.

In 2013 I graduated with a MLitt in Orkney & Shetland Studies, my dissertation topic was the social history of seaweed in Orkney.
