About Me

Born in Wellington, New Zealand, I made Sydney, Australia my home some years ago. And I enjoyed a long, fulfilling career as a registered nurse and midwife, but it was time for a change. Creativity was calling.

Where my creative skills have found expression in a variety of artistic enterprises, I now channel them into wildlife photography. It’s my lifeblood and I’m living the dream!

My love of both photography and travel has taken me throughout Australia as well as, Antarctica, Canada, China, Cuba, Ethiopia, Falkland Islands, Galapagos Islands, Greenland, Iceland, India, Israel, Jordan, Madagascar, New Zealand, Reunion Island, Russia, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, USA, Zambia and Zimbabwe

An adventurous journey, one of its many wonderful aspects is the mystery—never knowing where it will lead.

I’ve witnessed the raw and incomparable beauty of nature; of the animal kingdom in its natural habitat. But also witnessing the mistreatment of animals led me to a desire to make a difference. One that extended beyond my initial goal of showcasing and paying homage to wildlife through my pictures, and towards a focus on animal health and science.

So, with a newfound sense of purpose, I undertook a Master of Wildlife Health and Conservation. My studies have enhanced my understanding of animal health, which is closely related to human health—now referred to as ‘One Health’.

Combining what I’ve learned and what I continue to observe through photography, I hope to educate people on wildlife health and conservation. It is only through education that we can understand and work towards the protection of wildlife and our environment for future generations.

‘In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught.’ (Baba Dioum, 1968.)
