This new body of work represents how I see my home; the places and spaces in which I walk. I’ve often found the strongest compositions to be bourn from the unpredictable and the decisive moment.

I majored in photography at NSCADU and have been using my photographs as my inspiration for this collection of images. I must admit, my first love is drawing and so I’ve been exploring the concepts of combining photography with drawing along with watercolour to give a unique and graphic quality.

Halifax and Dartmouth are wonderful places to explore; full of old and new examples of architecture all blended together in one landscape. Moody skies, windy streets that lead from one Maritime treasure to another keep my perspective fresh and full of enthusiasm.
