The photographs that you see here are a fraction of places I have visited and life I have experienced.
If my camera could tell you a story; it may begin when I was given a camera by my father at 10 years of age. He was "saying good-bye "after dropping me off at boarding school in Singapore. It was a day I shall never forget.
My camera became my trusted friend, the one that snapped photos of children around the villages of Malaysia. I made friends animals at the zoo, children laughing and playing around the villages. I watched women washing their clothes at the road-side. I became essentially the "watcher" My keen eye would record anything that inspired me or I had an emotional connection with. Mainly as now : families, children, nature and animals. I tried to connect my relationship with the world through them and keep the images.
My camera didn't record the sounds of a thousand birds flying over-head or the sprinkling rain on geraniums, the smells of freshly mowed grass. Through the eyes of a child, some 50 years later, I am still doing the same, following a passion that was inert in my soul.
In addition to my camera, I owned a pencil and art paper and soon both my camera and my art became great friends; I drew and painted those faces, animals, birds. I tried to capture their emotion and interaction within their worlds. You deserve to have some of those important times in your life recorded and saved. Not just saved but passed on to your families and your grandchildren.
Over the years and having raised 4 children, my desire to capture the best, the most natural, expressive photos has been a life's journey, the experience of which I have to pass on to you.
This maybe a longer introduction to my work than you usually see in a bio; but I wanted to share with you what I convey through my photographs. I have painted portraits of people and animals. One of my portraits of the Queen Mother is hanging in Buckingham Palace. What you see are not just snap-shots; rather a collection of many years of work, love, experience and sheer joy in recording my vision of the miraculous phenomena we call "life".
Cherish your memories, as I cherish mine, enjoy the positive and the beautiful, focus on that and your world will become a better place..
