I was born in Kirkcudbright, a small fishing town in the South West of Scotland, now a thriving Artist town. After living
in Edinburgh and South Queensferry for a time, I now live in Dalgety Bay, Fife. I have always chosen to live in close proximity to the sea, as the duality of water, in all its forms has always held great fascination for me.
After completing a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone, Dundee, I have enjoyed being part of numerous group exhibitions both here and abroad. My first solo show, ‘In The Space Of Elsewhere’ was held in Kyoto, Japan in 2017. It was just prior to this that I started to experiment with installation and projections based on the natural environment. I began to harness nature itself to produce works, and I consider these interactions, as a conversation with nature.
