Whether you are searching for that special, timeless piece of art to treasure for a lifetime, or a little gift or greeting card with an inspiring image, you've come to the right place. We have a selection of photographs, mostly of travel, nature and dance themes, all revealing beauty from some place in the world.

Concept and meaning are all-important elements in contemporary art and photography. True art makes a statement about something, it changes the atmosphere of the space it occupies. Artists are passionate people, we care deeply about human rights, the environment and animals rights, we need to express our voice through visual means. With so much trouble on this beautiful earth, contemporary art leans toward confrontation, edgy and gritty. It aims to shock the viewer out of complacency into action. 

I’ve chosen a different path.

It’s ironic that the choice of peace and beauty is filled with opposition, it isn’t a popular way in contemporary art. If people saw the world through my lens, they would be so overwhelmed by its beauty that they’d delight in caring for it and its people and animals. So I’ve made it my life’s mission to challenge the status quo of contemporary art and be an ambassador for peace, making artworks which create a sanctuary in the spaces they hang.



 

I'm also available for photo shoots. Are you looking for fresh, unique portrait photos? Do you need headshot images for your website, social media profiles or dance/acting audition applications? Would you like to work with a photographer who will help you to feel comfortable in front of the camera and capture confident, approachable looking photographs of you? I would love to be the one!

I am a photographer and artist living in Sydney with my husband and our wonder-dog. Our daughter is a ballerina working in Europe. Our life is filled with art, nature and dance.My father was a photographer and picture-framer, so from as early as I can remember, I have been surrounded by pictures. He grew up in Fiji, living in a grass hut and spear-fishing. He was always very forward thinking and progressive. I'm still amazed to consider that even though he had minimal formal education, he built his own dark-room enlarger because there was no local photographic supply store. 

After leaving school, I studied fine art, majoring in printmaking, design and photography. For the past 25 years, I have been working with various mediums, mostly etching, watercolour and collage. The camera has become my favourite medium of choice the past few years.

I'd love to help you with any questions, enquiries, custom orders or unusual project ideas you have!

Bernadette
