Nell Is a self taught visual artist & photographer & has called Denmark Western Australia home for 20 years.
She bought a second hand SLR as a young adult, & after delving into creative practices ranging from printmaking & textiles to painting & ceramics - found her way back to photography when picking up a preloved DSLR.
Flora is a reocurring theme. Nells passion for gardening & her growing collection of unique vintage/antique glassware & vessels., Nell finds her inspiration limitless.
Creating bouquets, Nell then rearranges them focusing on their extraordinary beauty, shape, contrast & composition. Rearranging & enhancing these elements allows her to search for beauty & order.
Nell then composes layers in camera to achieve her final image, with minor adjustments post production.
Her workflow is instinctive & imaginative, where the possibilities are seemingly endless.
It is her aspiration that these feelings are heightened & transferred to the viewer. Through this exploration of layering images , Nell hopes it can provide insights into themes related to her life experiences.
Her artistic approach can be challenging & unpredictable with exciting results. Nell will pursue the exploration of flora, colour & light, & will continue to challenge herself in seeking to understand what it means to be a fine art photographer in the 21st century.
