I feel proud and privileged to have been selected in October 2005 by Leeds Fine Artists, thus becoming their first-ever exhibiting photographer.
I started taking photographs in March 2005 and held my first public display of work in Burton Agnes Hall courtyard gallery in May 2005.
I have since exhibited in many galleries around Yorkshire.
My husband watercolourist Glenn Marshall, called me Tech-no-chick when I first took up computer imagery and it has stuck.
All of my images are created from my own original photographs, sometimes with dramatic effects and sometimes very subtle.
I try to visualise a finished idea in my mind and hope to control the outcome. It doesn’t always work but it sure can be fun.
I like to portray the world as I see it. I believe that my being partially sighted can only help me to look at things differently and with an abstract view.I have suffered with ME since 1986 but I have learned to control the symptoms most of the time, with an organic diet, gentle exercise, plus herbal and homoeopathic remedies. At 55 – an age were most people are winding down, getting ready to retire – my life took on a new beginning.
