I find cemeteries fascinating; they are filled with beautiful monuments, history and wildlife. My obsession began as a child when I visited family graves with my parents. Whilst the adults arranged flowers I would wander off and look in amazement at all the angels, doves and crosses. Sadly many graves are now crumbling; burial space is running out and graveyards are being reclaimed by local authorities or nature. In 2006 I set up the Silent Cities Project, taking photographs of many of these amazing memorials so that future generations can see what they looked like and I also became involved with their restoration. As an author I give interviews and write for national newspapers and magazines about places of eternal rest and grave symbolism. I have produced my own Silent Cities series of books. I am also an actress.
As a photographer my work is used for book, album covers and advertising. I have a stock library of thousands of images including architecture, animals and birds, street art and abandoned buildings.
As ‘Ink Loving Memory’ I advise on memorial tattoos and tattoo design and can supply photos for artwork.
