Scottish in upbringing, I have lived in Fife for the last 28 years. Studying Design at Edinburgh College of Art (2003-2006) and later Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone, Dundee (2014-2016), I have been drawn back to art because of its ability to allow me to express myself in a way that nothing else does. I believe that Art not only allows me an opportunity to explore and understand myself, but also others in a way I cannot explain from a purely intellectual standpoint.
For me Art is not only about aesthetics, but also about intellect, emotion, philosophy, and at times, politics. There lies a story behind a lot of my works, but I prefer to allow viewers to make their own stories in reaction to my work and to keep it open in terms of the viewer’s interpretation.
I work in ceramics, photography, drawing, sculpture and film.
This site is divided into Portfolio and Projects, dependent on how you wish to search. Searching portfolio, you will find this is organised as per medium. Searching Projects, this is organised as according to themes. For this reason you may find some work repeated under both. By the same token you may find some projects which don’t cross mediums just under Portfolio.
