I am an artist, in awe of this strange planet and like many, I find myself at times wrestling with (and drawn to) the polarised nature in which humanity expresses itself.
I rarely have a particular medium in mind, or how I will communicate this expansive endeavour, and am always open to the possibilities of how each artwork should be researched and represented. One work may require collaboration, culminating in a piece of ‘Ceramic and Sound'. Another may ask for a solitary approach, then represented through ‘Photography and Word’. Each concept dictates each exploration.
At present, Sculptural form is foremost in my desire to express myself creatively. I tend to have a philosophical approach to art, in that my interests go beyond created form. In particular the Logos - the so-called divine principle of reason and judgement associated with the animus. This interest has led to a continued questioning of the ‘vessel’ as a natural object containing the intangible, and as an expression of humanity within varied cultures throughout history.
Having graduated from Edinburgh College of Art (University of Edinburgh) in July 2018, with a BA (Hons) in Sculpture I recieved the 2018 SSA New Graduate Award and the Santander Travel/ Research Award.
Before ECA, I trained in Model Making, Applied Art and then obtained an HND in Silversmithing & Jewellery Design at City of Glasgow College.
I previously worked for many years as a free-lance ‘Creative Consultant’ with skills in Design, Illustration, Photography and Print, specialising in Project Management. Having worked for several years within the recording industry, I also have experience in Sound Design, as a Recording Engineer and Music Producer.
As well being asked to exhibit at the Royal Scottish Academy in 2018/19 and at the Boécho Gallery, London, I have further gallery representation in Scotland, London and Barcelona. My recent and older work is also held in several private collections. Full details of exhibitions a other artistic achievements can be found via the downloadable CV.
