  • Biography
When I was three years old, I moved with my family to the village of Kingston-on-Spey, situated on the west, shingle bank of the river Spey’s estuary, on the Moray Firth. My own relationship with this landscape continues to grow and change as the years pass. Family and friends have left, so there is no need for me to return, but this land inhabits me. It is a series of edges and limits where river meets ocean, meets land, meets sky. These borders are not rigid. They are fluid, like the water that shapes them. Buildings have been washed away with the tide, whole industries flooded and forgotten. There is a haptic memory too; these hard rocks made smooth by their slow journey down the Spey from the hinterland. Washed westwards along the coast by the Longshore Drift and further polished by the waves. I know the feeling of that stone in my hand and the particular sensation of walking on those huge shingle plains.
