Hi I am a photographer from the Mornington Peninsula Victoria Australia. I specialise in seascape and botanical photography.
I love to spend time photographing our beautiful beaches on the Peninsula - the crisp salty air, the hypnotic sound of the waves, and the striking crimson sky of a sunset over the water. And mother nature’s elegance found in the beauty of a flower can captivate me for hours. I often photograph the same flower from many angles, studying the different shapes, textures and many shades of colour found in one single bloom.
I became fascinated with photography as a child and was gifted my first camera at age 10. My late father was an amateur photographer and let me read all his photography books and magazines. I will be forever grateful for his instruction and encouragement. I feel his presence every time I pick up my camera.
I studied photography in secondary school and then continued on with study as an adult. I am constantly working towards perfecting my craft, attending workshops and online tuition.
As a carer of a family member with a chronic illness, photography is my solace, that time just for me when I can escape the harshness of the human experience and be totally in the moment with mother nature in all her beauty.
My images are available to purchase as Limited Edition of 30 Fine Art Prints, Fine Art Canvas, Art Mounts or Greeting Cards.
I hope you find as much joy in my images as I did making them.
“To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart.”

We purchased a framed print of 'our' beach-South Beach Mount Martha. So happy with it and with her helpful and professional service. Looking forward to purchasing more beautiful photographs of the Mornington Peninsula!
I love her creative compositions and her unique talent with colour. I would highly recommend Lea's work.
I purchased two of Leas "Dusk Reflections", one for a friend in the UK and one for myself. I absolutely love them. The colour's are amazing and the quality excellent. I highly recommend her work.
Wonderful artwork....beautiful colours on ‘Moonlit Bay’. Would highly recommend purchasing her artwork to brighten any room.
