Fleur's work is concerned with our relationship with the natural world and the objects used in her photo collages are heavily symbolic of life and death. She also draws influence from Carl Gustav Jung, the renowned psychiatrist and psychotherapist. The motif of the Mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism that represents the universe. Jung spoke of the urge to produce Mandalas at times of intense personal growth and as a way of rebalancing the psyche, the result is said to be a more complex and integrated personality. Photography is central to Fleur's practice which revolves around environmental documentation and our relationship with the natural world.
Fleur has exhibited widely, nationally and internationally and her work has been published in numerous magazines and newspapers. She is currently an active member of the artistic community as a director in an artist co-operative called Making Art Work based in Kent and as part of an artist collective called Interlope.
Fleur is the mother of three children and lives in the South East of England. She graduated with a first class BA in photography from the University of Creative Arts in 2012.
