Scottish in upbringing I have gravitated back to art as it allows me to express and explore myself and others in a way that cannot be explained in a purely intellectual way.
Studying design at Edinburgh College of At 2003- 2006 then Masters in Fine Art 2014-2016, I originally went back to art when studying Art therapy in 2000. I am interested in the use of art in understanding human behaviour, history, nature and at times politics.
