  • Biography
I am an artist living and working in Edinburgh, Scotland. My primary medium is sculpture but my practise is somewhat eclectic, encompassing artists books, print making, video, sound and photography. I work with a range of materials apposite to realising the form and its intended location. The visual, tactile and presence of the material is an important part of my work.
