About the Artist
Blending my background in science, photography, and the antiques & collectables trade with my Orkney & Shetland roots, I use a diverse range of found objects, traditional yarns, antique fabrics, and raw materials to create pieces evocative of the light, land, and sea of Scotland in kiln glass panels, knitted & woven wares, paintings, costumes, and jewellery.
Recent and current works and events of note include:
In Vogue costume production project and Summer-long exhibition at Stirling Castle in conjunction with Historic Environment Scotland.
Promotional artworks with fellow artist David Barbara for Stirling Tourism/Wallace Monument Female 'Hero' Inauguration.
Photographic exhibit at Stirling Uni Pathfoot Art Gallery space as joint winner of their annual photography competition 2016.
Crime fiction novel 'Digging Up the Dead' cover photo for author Dr Vicki Clifford.
Storm, Ardnamurchan painting shortlisted for RSW 136th Winter Exhibition.
Regular photographic assignments for The Bridge newspaper including the BBC filming of Rillington Place and David Tenant's What We Did On Our Holiday. One of these images being deemed Best Photo Supporting an Article (Scottish Press Awards.)
