THE WORK Mothers of transformation: the everyday heroism of women

This series is based on Ceridwen, the Godess of transformation. These portraits are of women as Mothers of the community: crash mats and guides to a more enriched and balanced lives of those who need support and care at a pivotal moment of their lives. This is the everyday role of these women.

My intention is to depict a fun, loving and empowered portrayal of these impressive individuals.

My aim is to capture and celebrate the essence of these women who support other people during a transformative time in their lives: from homelessness to shelter; from harm to safety, towards equilibrium. These women instil a sense of wellness for the women they meet. I want to portray their core with a contrasting aspect of their character, both ‘on’ and ‘off’ duty: both ‘at play’ and ‘in the office’.

Everywoman .     

It’s an honour to photograph these women in their daily environment and tell their inspirational and inspired stories. 

I’ve been interpreting and capturing moments on film from an early age, playing with light and movement to bring characters and their stories alive. Having studied Fine Art, I have a keen eye for detail and enjoy the creative interpretation of images. With a degree in Drama, and NFTS and BBC training, specialising in Film and TV,  I bring action to life through a lens.  I enjoy, explore, examine and experiment in order to enhance and develop my work.

There is a feeling of what you might call the ‘unchanging, ever-changing’ in her work.

Thank you to Leanne Wood for the sponsorship and Phrame Collective for the support and encouragement

Adventure | Antur album release

This album has been an adventure | antur to make –  a bit like plunging in to the North Sea without a wetsuit, swimming towards the rainbow! No, it’s not me on the front cover, but I’m in awe of these women, with their orange floats, who swam at North Berwick on a wet winter’s day.  The album is dedicated to love and laughter, and days that unfold – a doorway to delight.

There is also a songbook, including original photographs of magical places in Wales along with the lyrics. I can post a copy to you, when you get in touch.

Film poetry

A triad of poems reflecting on solitude and our relationship with nature as we process emotions.
A collaboration between the visual artist and a poet where the language of words and the moving image collide in a beautiful symmetry.
An exploration of the film maker’s response to the imagery in the poems.

Very positive response from the audience @chaptermoviemaker. Thanks Tom for the description of “eloquent”!

Void music video

As part of #timetotalk day today, here’s a new version of Void, a song and film that aims to raise awareness of mental health. This film explores the themes of suicide and captures the essence of a state of mind.   Let’s continue the conversation about mental health and support people who are facing difficulties. Let’s be open and strong in order to eliminate stigma, and celebrate creativity in our community. 

Thank you to those who made this project possible.
