Hay-on-Wye. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout Wales and has regularly featured in the press.
"My photography centres on people. Whether in a formal setting or a candid street’ style, capturing the individual characters I encounter is what drives my passion to take photos. However, during the first pandemic lockdown in March 2020, the streets emptied, we were confined to our homes, and my camera became temporarily dormant.
By the time the restrictions began to ease in July I was desperate to start shooting again. With my family in tow and the sun shining I headed to the Welsh coast - to y traethau (the beaches) - and spent the summer capturing life at the water’s edge."
