Jill Swainson: Photographer

Uplyme, Devon

The magnificence and splendour of nature is all around us. If I can portray something of that beauty, draw attention to it and share it with others, I have achieved my aim. Photography is about capturing a subject in the moment, a dazzling moment which is beyond man's creation. I very much hope that my photographs will inspire you, as the subjects have inspired me.

My images are available as limited-edition prints, canvas photographs, place mats, coasters, mugs and greetings cards. I also undertake commissions of favourite scenes or buildings and trust that the passion and fascination I have for these subjects is apparent in my work.

A larger exhibition of my work, comprising of ancient vistas local to Lyme Regis and elsewhere in England, Ireland and France, can be seen at Leys Barn Gallery (viewing by appointment). In 2008, after the death of my father, my life changed dramatically. I sold the family home in Surrey and began to look for a property, which would enable me to realise a dream. Leys Barn Gallery and The Pot Place at Valley View Farm are part of that dream.
