Hi There. I celebrate my love for authenticity and adventure through my photography, styling and travelling wares retail experience.
I’m passionate about Australia and how we all live within its vast surroundings. My visual story telling is inspired by the everyday people and landscapes I encounter on my adventures.
I works in both the freelance editorial and advertising capacities with a unique blend of photography and styling – as a photographer, stylist or both.
Back at home I reference the Australian landscape to build a wholesome life in my humble weatherboard cottage, thriving on the primitive protection it offers and the joy it brings, shared by my small flock of loved pekin bantams and my husband Timothy O in Brisbane, Queensland.
A brief history…..from finding much success within the photography industry in 2003 off the back of being the youngest person to win the much acclaimed ‘Canon Australian Institute of Professional Photography ‘AIPP Photographer of the Year’ title, I went on to photograph for some of Australia’s most loved magazine titles and advertising campaigns. Along side this my personal photographic work has been included in many prestigious exhibitions and acquired in permanent collections both locally and abroad, most notably a solo exhibition at the Sydney Opera House. Relocating from Sydney to London in 2007, I filled my love for interiors through prop styling, sourcing and buying throughout Europe. Returning to my home country in 2010 I started the second chapter of my career, creating the much loved ‘Travelling Wares’ caravan pop up – housed in a 1956 caravan called Frankie, touring the nation selling my found utilitarian vintage pieces for the home.
I share my life through my blog, Facebook and Instagram and I’m set to offer a new range of essential wares for the home inspired by the local Australian makers and crafters I have recently met while travelling and documenting our incredible country Australia. I was recently named by UK interiors ‘bible’ Elle Decoration as ‘A Modern Day Martha Stewart’. I am 30 years old.
