My Story

 

When I was a little girl I loved art. I loved everything from drawing, and crafts to the casual turning Play-Doh from works of art into a brown mess. My nickname in primary school was the ‘paper fairy’.

When I was in high school I got straight A’s for art. I knew I wanted to do something creative. When I left, I studied sign writing and worked as a sign writer in my early 20’s for a few years. 

During this time I discovered photography as a passion, so I went on to study it at TAFE. I remember one of my teachers saying that only three people in the whole class would become professional photographers (very inspiring). And I said to myself, ‘that will be me’. 

Bored of sign writing, I moved into a web technology business for 5 years, doing technical support and later training management, while photographing events, DJs, and corporate portraits on the side. 

That soon turned into a five year gig, but one thing was missing – the skillset to market myself, so I studied marketing and have been working in marketing for the past 10 years alongside being a professional photographer and videographer.

I tell stories.

MEET RONNIE

 

This is one of my favourite photos that I’ve taken.

This is my Grandad, Ron, Ronald or Ronnie as my Grandma used to yell out from the kitchen when dinner was ready (or when he was in trouble hehe).

He is the funniest and most wise person I know… even through all the loss of his wife, his children and his friends before him does he remain the happiest person I have had the pleasure of knowing.

At 91, he continues to live.

I’m a creative at heart.

It’s in My Blood

 

Creativity is in my blood, in fact it’s in my bloodline.

My great-grandmother, Dorothy (Dot) Lansdown, was an award-winning artist whose focus was predominately acrylic portraiture painting. She holds a camera in this photo, a tool she used to capture the essence of people, using those images as reference points for her paintings.

Faye Grimshaw, Dot’s daughter and Ronnie’s sister, dedicated a significant portion of her life to the realm of art. She garnered numerous awards for her artistic endeavors. During the 1940s and 50s, Faye also lent her talent to crafting animated illustrations for David Jones, showcasing her creativity in the vibrant world of visual storytelling.
