My work explores shape, form and balance – specifically the tension that exists between them. I am interested in a variety of artistic techniques with which to convey my ideas and feelings. Much of what I make is borne from a desire to express an abstract aesthetic – a sentiment which conveys a relationship between form and feeling.
I am principally motivated by materials and my training in the crafts and applied arts shapes the way I approach my work – whether it is a pencil drawing or a large scale installation.
I am a Scottish artist living in the South West of France.
After studying Jewellery Design at Edinburgh College of Art and the Royal College of Art in London, I now work principally with drawing, collage, printmaking and paper.
Two years ago I became able to devote more time to my work and have since been re-establishing my practice as well as teaching part time.
My craft training has shaped the way I work today in whichever medium I am working.
