About

I am a visual artist based in Crail, Fife. I have an established contemporary art practice, exhibiting in recognised galleries and have worked to commission for both public and private clients. 

 

My art practice is very much process based and recognises, and often embraces the use of traditional crafts, the written word and song. These are frequently combined with contemporary methods of presentation such as photography, screen-printing and hand-stitched work.

 

I have been involved in co-founding a number of artist-run initiatives including Underlay Artist's CollectiveCatalyst Arts in Belfast and Not in Kansas, Glasgow.

I am the current Treasurer of Scottish Artist Union.
