Gachou is a very keen photographer in all genres but with a preference for abstract and nature art photography. She took up photography after retiring in 2012. A very good course made her discover how to use a given DSLR camera and from there it took off in an obsessive way. To progress faster in the world of photography Gachou joined a well known camera club the" Guildford Photographic Society". She joined in their competitions and exhibitions at Guildford House Gallery and other venues. Two years ago her and a friend created a group called "Digitali" of four photographers. Digitali has exhibited at Guildford Institute over a year ago and last year in November 2019 at Farnham Pottery Centre. Also Gachou was invited by Guildford Arts to take part with six other artists to exhibit. A member of the Kiln Photography Workshop since 2018. She was exhibiting with KPW last March 2020 just before Covid-19 interrupted everything!!
