  • Biography
Since graduating I have been committed to painting, print-making, book-making and film and I am concerned with recording the tissue layers in landscape and the spirit of place. As part of my continuing professional development: I attend Studio Practice sessions at WASPS studios in Dalry. I have a studio at Beaverhall and have been a member of Edinburgh Printmakers' Workshop since 1986 and was on the exhibitions committee 1992-95. I lecture for and take part in a creative writing group based at The City Art Centre . Since '97, I have taught art at St George's School for Girls and enjoy exploring process and building students confidence and expression. I have been instrumental in ensuring that artists come in to the school to give talks or run workshops. My former career, included, programming education and events at the FruitMarket Gallery, Edinburgh 92 - 97 . This involved working with artists and many other agencies to make contemporary art accessible to a diverse audience. I led a ground-breaking interpretation project, produced videos about artists and ran workshops and forums about contemporary art practice. I was on the exec committee for the National Association for Gallery Education 92-97.

I worked for Scottish Television as an arts researcher and producer and prior to this taught for Adult and Continuing Education at University of Edinburgh and for East Lothian.
