“Photography has changed my life and I live to create. I believe my enthusiasm and passion for photography shown within my work and videography needs to be shared and to hopefully inspire others. For my own personal reasons, photography is a spiritual and wonderful way to keep myself connected to nature and express myself via this amazing medium.
I started the content creator road on YouTube, making predominately landscape photography videos and the success of this has given me the momentum to start printing my own work and run my own website and podcasts. My photography can be quite eclectic and I love to experiment, play and express myself from camera to the final image”.

Lisa lives in the north of Scotland and creates calming art with textures of Caithness Stone.
I was surrounded by the county’s flagstone, its heritage, and the vast landscape composed during its formation. I see sky, sea and land upon the weathered surfaces of Caithness stone. I create digital artworks using photographs of stone captured from various sites including harbours, beaches, paving slabs and even ancient standing stones.
Connecting with the natural environment is my therapy. Through my work, I aim to encourage deeper connections between people and the therapeutic qualities of their surroundings.
