MA Fine Art
Born in the Rhondda, I have lived and worked in Wales all of my life. I began taking photographs when I was about nine years old and my fascination with the photographic image has not diminished with time. I studied photography at Newport in the 90’s and completed an MA in fine art in 2002. I continue to make and show photographic work locally and nationally.
