Real Women – Bare as You Dare
Part of a group exhibition by the students studying the BA (Hons) Applied Media course at Truro College, in conjunction with Plymouth University. Exhibition runs from 5th to 11th May 2015 at The Poly, Spring Gallery24 Church Street, Falmouth, Cornwall, TR11 3EG
Working with the concept of body realism, and in response to media expectations on women in 2015, this project showcases that human beauty is not a ‘one size fits all’ equation.
Women were invited into the studio to model for a series of portraits to provide positive body inspiration to other women. The instruction that the women was given was that that the shoot was inspired by historical classical paintings and sculptures and would showcase the diversity of shapes, sizes and natural bodies of women without any body enhancing image manipulation, and was as bare as they dared.
Nature versus Nurture
Part of a group exhibition by the students studying the FdA Photography & Digital Imaging course at Truro College.
My exhibition is a photographic exploration concerning the conflicting desire of parents to ‘protect’ their daughters from growing up and their desires to copy the role models, and media images around them, and indeed to ‘grow up’.
The juxtaposition of dressing up and growing up.
Spirit of Padstow
This is my first solo exhibition and is an exploration into the essence of the lifeboat at Padstow (Spirit of Padstow) and of the boathouse and the aura / feelings that the place evokes without concentrating on one specific individual.

From Friday 21st March 2014 the exhibition will be relocated to the RNLI Padstow Lifeboat Station, Trevose Head, Mother Iveys Bay, PL28 8SL for public viewing during normal operational visiting hours and may be subject to change without notice.
God’s Wonderful Railway
Taken at Bodmin and Wenford Railway, as well as the Lappa Valley Railway, these images are an insight into the steam-powered engines running throughout Cornwall. They explore notions of preservation, dedication and a pastime which has become unfamiliar and forgotten for most of us, except that of skilled volunteers that tirelessly keep this heritage alive for us all to enjoy.
