Welcome to my webpage. I enjoy macro photography, photographing the beautiful Yorkshire countryside and creating Cyanotypes, cards & prints.


Cards

Welcome to my online shop where you can buy my cards & pay securely with PayPal.

The resulting pieces are unique and present botanical prints in a different and painterly manner.

Each of my pieces are created with plants and flowers exposed using only the North Yorkshire sun (when we get it!)
