My name is Pixie Copley, fine art photography, fractal art and graphic design are my passion.
I live near Cambridge, UK and I enjoy taking photographs and creating art that feature bright colours, especially the bright colours that are found in nature. I also love taking still life and art nude portraits both in a studio or on location, and like experimenting with contemporary abstract photography too.
I studied art, design and photography in Cambridge then got my first job at a local graphic design and screen printing company in 1995 where I learned all about working with clients and meeting tight deadlines. I opened the doors to my own digital media and graphics business ‘Pix and Mix’ in 2007 and spend the day working on a huge variety of design and digital media work for clients.
During my time off I am either outside with my camera or in front of the computer creating fractal art in Adobe Photoshop.
I then sell my fractal art and retro patterns printed on to a huge range of gifts in my Hippy Gift Shop.
In 2009 I had my first taste of scuba diving, I rented an underwater camera and quickly became addicted. I am now a member of a BSAC diving club and really enjoy developing my underwater skills, I spend most Sunday nights taking lessons or taking part in training sessions in a pool then travel to more tropical waters and put my skills in to practice by photographing the amazing underwater life.
I’m also a member of St Neots camera club and I regularly take part in competitions, exhibitions, workshops and lectures to develop my photography skills and learn new techniques and not forgetting the most important thing of receiving helpful critique, tips and advice.
I hope you enjoy looking through my portfolio of fine art photography and fractal art prints.
