  • Biography
My work is often research and location based and is made up of a combination of photography, printmaking, collage and digital processes: creating minimal, considered compositions. My work usually takes the form of a print or book, often with a text or narrative element. A preoccupation for all things nautical has led to past projects which cover subjects including ocean currents, flashing patterns of Scottish lighthouses and Scottish fishing folklore. I am interested in the natural environment for its potentially dramatic and changeable nature, and also with the interactions of humankind with the natural world.
