I came late to the practice of art. I learned traditional sculpture techniques at an atelier school in Southwark, London. I am increasingly interested in informal materials and site-specific work. In 2017, I moved to Manchester where I took my present studio in Hope Mill. I recently completed a large site-specific work at Victoria Baths, Manchester, which is to be retained on permanent loan. I am currently participating in bOlder, a six months long programme, for artists over 50, under the auspices of Castlefield Gallery. I am particularly interested in getting my work into ‘real-life’ situations and I would welcome all enquires for site specific projects, large or small

Two for Joy

Wedding Photographers

“Doubly cool, candid and contemporary wedding photography”

Two for Joy Photography is Nikki and Meg. Two big personalities with a real eye for the occasion. Two different styles – one formal, one candid – simultaneously capturing two very different views of the day.

Meg has a fashion background, is meticulous and creates incredibly beautiful must-have formal shots. Nikki is a contemporary artist with the split-second timing to grab those unmissable moments of pure emotion. Two photographers. Twice the shots. Twice the joy.

Lastly, there’s ‘JOY’ our vintage Photo Booth. Beneath her sleek wooden exterior, she’s packed with state-of-the-art tech. Essential Party starter.
