Gillian is a member and Trustee of East Street Arts, Leeds, and
an artist with Debut Contemporary, London.
Her work explores the everyday and familiar; looking at the unremarkable and
what happens when nothing is happening; and how where we find ourselves
affects our notions, perceptions and assumptions about places, people and identity.
This lies at the heart of the sudden feelings of dissonance she experiences in
her encounters with the everyday. It's the glimpse of the familiar seeming out-of-place,
almost absurd, within its daily ordinariness.
Gillian uses a wide range of both traditional and new media. The Holbeck Botanicals
series in this show employ digital drawing, painting and collage techniques.
