Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, BA Technical & Production Arts
I am a visual artist and poet based in Scotland. I studied sculpture at Concordia University in Montreal, gaining a BFA in Sculpture With Great Distinction, and Technical & Production Arts at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. I have shown my work in several group shows in Montreal, Glasgow and at MIX NYC 2012, in Brooklyn, New York. I am currently studying in the Art, Society & Publics MFA Programme at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee, and I serve on the Executive of the Scottish Artists Union.
I develop my conceptual ideas while walking and writing. Text, multi- layered interpretation and language-play are threads that run through my work. I use materials for their semiotic value, particularly in terms of historical and cultural context. Currently, I am examining and challenging the binary doctrines of: winners & losers; finding & losing; and sameness & difference.
