I have always loved the photographic imagine — almost as much as the written word. While a young child, I fantasised that my eyes were cameras and every time I blinked I was capturing the image I was looking at. My photographs started out as very traditional artistic imagines but have grown strange and deep. I like shapes and colours and the merging of images. All of my photographs are taken using my phone.
