Past the trees that greet the shoreline of this windswept island, deep within the forest where wood sprites dwell and the morning mists roll in from the sea lies Misty Isle Cottage. There is magic in these woods. Old magic.
Misty Isle Cottage is my homestead lying at the edge of the world on an island in the North Atlantic. It is here in this wild place that I create ethereal fine art photography, welcoming you into poetic worlds of mystery and wonder.
I’m a cottage witch living a slow and simple life in a seaside forest making friends with the animals that visit my home, baking fragrant loaves of bread, sitting under old oak trees reading books as the birds sing, and living in harmony with the seasons and the cycles of the moon.
I love to spend time dreaming of magical worlds that are both peaceful and mysterious. It is these dream worlds that I invite you to enter though my photography. Often drawing inspiration from folklore, mythology, and romanticism, it is my hope that my photographs bring you a sense of calm enchantment.
We are all intimately connected to the earth. We are a part of it and it is a part of us. I believe we have a responsibility to take care of the earth, just as it takes care of us in return. This is why I carefully source my printing materials to reduce environmental impact. I have chosen museum quality, forest-friendly Hahnemühle Bamboo paper and print all photos in my home studio.
Creation is life-giving energy. It nourishes and enhances life. Each unique photograph has a story to tell. And even more than that, the story it tells can differ from person to person as each person brings their own unique interpretations, ideas, and experiences. As I share my creations with you, it is my hope that they inspire the creative fire within you. That they spark you to dream, reflect, and weave stories of your own.
A deep connection to the natural world is at the heart of what I do. My hope is that my photographs deepen your sense of belonging to this wide and wild world. That they inspire you to uncover the secrets of ancient wisdom, find the extraordinary in the ordinary, and become enchanted with the world.
