EXPERIMENTAL ANALOGUE PHOTOGRAPHY
Chaos and the darkness between stars make up most of existence. But light, mandalas and snail shells prove order exists. Between dark and light is colour, between pentatonic scales and dissonance is the music of our lives. When words and analytics fail us, art allows us to wordlessly sing into the unknown.
AM I A NUDIST?
When I was a child, playing in the gully, I was told by a teacher to put my top back on.
I looked at the boys, I looked at myself (at this age there was no visible difference between our chests). “Why?” I asked. “Because you are a girl”.
I pondered this, but it didn’t stop me jumping into lakes naked on school trips.
My mother received complaints she never bothered to pass on to me.
Well yes, stood on the top of a cliff, clad in nothing but sky, there are few greater feelings.
Or lying naked in moss and pine needles and knowing that I am of the earth beneath me,
I have never felt more beautiful.
And on those dark wine nights where the party moves slightly wilder and I am in the company of all my nude friends, I look around and see how everyone’s body is as unique as their face and we are all animals of the earth playing and wonderful and I want to paint every single one of us.
You are all perfect to me.
OTHER WORLDS IN URINE
This is my latest series in creation - ‚Other Worlds‘.
Created through a technique called souping, this negative was soaked in urine and menstrual blood for two weeks before hand processing.

I want to be eaten by the earth and spat into the stars. When I go walking with my friends all I want is for them to always stay, but when I am alone I feel powered by nothing but fire and I want to burn everything. How can I go on like this, thirsty enough to break open the earth and drink from its core.
