This is about me and this blog is about my photography and what I’m trying to achieve with my photography.
Ultimately I am a middle-aged woman who loves making the world into my vision.
I’ve been taking photos for over 25 years. That’s if you count from first SLR, though I have been taking photos all my life and got my first camera when I was around 10.
Photography was expensive and I wasn’t allowed to do a lot. We didn’t have a lot of money for that sort of thing.
While doing that I was also drawing as much as I could. Being an artist was something I really wanted. I was born to be an artist.
My home life wasn’t great growing up, and I’ve learned to live with the consequences of it. How to deal with the crap when it comes up.
Learning that I am a bit ADHD has explained a lot and I realise I’m no stranger to mental health issues. It has taken me a long time to work out that is what my work is about. My crazy mind. My brain that never turns off.
There are a lot of things that I do with my photography, but what it all comes down to is me taking photos, and me processing them. Me controlling the crazy world around me with those images. Well attempting to.
