I've been fascinated by photography since I was a young girl in the 70s - occasionally being allowed to use my grandparents box brownie. I was given a Kodak instamatic for my 12th birthday and remember that feeling of wonderment after waiting for the film to be developed. There is a little piece of magic in photography that still grabs me to this day . After leaving school I took up a degree course in Edinburgh but missed my group of islands in the North and after a year I returned home.

   I use mainly old film cameras and make some pinhole cameras, shooting on paper or film - the long exposures needed helps slow me down in the instantaneous digital world. The waiting until you are home before discovering what - if anything _ has been captured. I love how every different camera can interpret the same scene in it's own unique way.
