    Her inspiration comes from the beauty that she sees in her surroundings. It is rarely the obvious that attracts her, but often the small, hidden, the forgotten, the lost, the left behind, and more recently the colours and the abstract forms that she finds in nature and inanimate objects. She believes in simplicity and essence, and also strives to make her photographs both evocative and atmospheric, and to then create an intimate connection with the viewer.
