Bio The path that led her to this point
Growing up with my Dad in the Air Force meant we moved around a lot, experiencing living in different cities throughout Australia and the US.
I loved the freeing feeling of exploring a city for the first time and capturing it with my camera.
Throughout my working life I continued to move around Australia, and longed to travel overseas again.
I focused on building a career and worked in a range of roles across varying industries, from Hospitality to Human Resource roles in the corporate sector but struggled to find that ‘something’ that really struck a cord in my heart.
After getting married, we bought a house and renovated it. We loved the process and while we'd often entertained the idea of starting a property business we made the move to London.
From 2007 to 2009 I continued to work in Human Resources but with Europe on our doorstep travel was much more of a focus than my career.
Then an opportunity to fulfil that desire of having a property business took us back to Australia.
As well as working part time outside of the business, I also started a creative side-project, manufacturing loungewear to sell online.
I loved the challenge of the property business and the sense of achievement from creating something from nothing with the loungewear business.
With the property business set up, and manageable from anywhere, the lure of doing more travel overseas was too strong and we moved back to London in 2011.
Though we wound up the property business in 2012, I continued selling the loungewear online.
I then couldn’t imagine not continuing to carve out my own path.
I started to explore my passion for photography further - first by necessity, while doing product photography for my store, and thereafter in other personal projects.
The more I worked on these projects, the more I realised that it was what I wanted to keep doing, and that I had to take a leap and throw myself into it.
I signed up to a photography course and while I was completely outside of my comfort zone my heart was reassuring me that I was right where I was meant to be - it was a real turning point for me.
Around that time I launched burrow.28 selling prints and cards based on my photography.
In December I closed the loungewear store to focus on burrow.28 and my photography full time.
