I enjoy photographing all of life’s moments.

I’m Scottish with a fair amount of Irish thrown in. Which should mean I’m a riot at parties and a recreational alcoholic. Funny maybe but I’m a nondrinker which in Scotland is a borderline criminal offense! Nothing against drinking simply not enough sugar involved. (If anyone is buying, grande latte – extra hot, no foam, and 12 of those little bags of raw sugar. Diabetic shock I hear you cry!) Sorry in Scotland we give babies cups of tea with 3 sugars just to get them off and running. 

What about photography? I had my aha moment in 1979 when I borrowed a friend’s camera and found out if you shoot on automatic you get rubbish photos. I immediately packed my things; moved to Dublin, got a degree and have not looked back. Came to America in 1987 by invitation of the same friend. I have lived in Knoxville the entire time. Got my green card, started a business, met some truly amazing people and have seen all of this beautiful country. It just goes from strength to strength and for that I’m grateful. Thank you to everyone who has helped and encouraged me along the way.
