About me

Background :: Work :: Education :: Exhibitions :: Publications

I am a multi award-winning visual artist, photographer and new media developer and designer. I studied Contemporary Art and Photography and have worked as an editorial photographer and video producer.
Throughout my early professional life in Spain I developed a strong interest in all aspects of photography, moving image, environmental, space sciences and natural history. I graduated in the early 90’s at the Luis Buñuel Institute in Madrid. I worked for several record and management music companies. I worked for the Spanish branches of Greenpeace and Amnesty International.
From 2001 to 2003 I was the New Media Developer and Digital Assets Manager at Adrian Bloom Horticultural Ltd and Bloompictures.com  one of the most important botanical picture libraries in the UK and at the forefront of the move to digital asset management.

I also hold a First Class Bsc (Hons) in Biological Imaging and have worked in numerous projects for the European Union, The British Council, The British Library, The Natural History Museum and The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research were I was the New Media Manager from 2006 until 2018.
I have been a drone pilot for several years and have flown in 3 different continents. I have years of experience in underwater photography both in Europe and Oceania (Australia and Polynesia).
I've worked on multiple stock and editorial projects as well was advertising and fashion though my main work is composed of Fine Art projects.

As part of my ongoing collaboration with the Sifting Perspectives I am one of the proud artists represented on the book “Sifting Perspectives 205-2012”.
The images in this book draw upon many different themes, from intimate family life, to asking if Down's syndrome occurs within every race or culture, from an actress recreating Vermeer paintings to portraits of teenage girls. From photographs taken by people with Down's syndrome, to people with Down's syndrome in the workplace. From lovers and married couples, to newborn babies.
