Bio

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.
