I live in Richmond in SW London outskirts. I am currently teaching and supporting art in a secondary school. Very involved in all aspects of art and photography. Love papier mache sculpture, batik, printing and photography.
I have my own papier mache restoration, creation and workshop business.

I spend my summers on the coast sailing.

I am a colour freak, love playing with colours, adore vintage and wacky creative processing and trying to learn some new techniques. Pleased I now have a good camera, canon 100D. I needed a good camera next, Olympus was fun but found it limited. Attended a three day course in photography - Aug 2014 - and begun to understand it all.

Would love to follow others and learn more about composition and improve my photography skills.
Happy to meet up with anyone to take photos in S or SW London.

I am Married with a son of 23 who has just got engaged and a BG team Acrobatic trio gymnast daughter of 20

Here are some of my photos which made the popular page in the 2 years I have been on the site.
