My art is often taken very close to home. Recently I have been taking many festival pictures all within five miles of my home. With everything being on my doorstep, I feel my neighbourhood is a beautiful cultured centre of its own little world. I am often exhibited in new mills and I am a photographer for disley coucil. Only about 3,000 people live in my village. I’m always the girl with a camera, and as a part of my little world people are very happy to have their images taken. With my art grown locally I have won two holidays: one to New York and one to Trinidad and Tobago. Not everything has to be exotic in photography and I have found people love my quirky local imagery. Four of my photos are globally published—share a lift home, bug eyes, get back better on, and sleep anywhere—which were all taken in my back garden.
