Statement

Bio

I am a multi-disciplinary artist based near Helensburgh, Scotland. I recently graduated (With Distinction) from the Art, Society & Publics MFA Programme at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee. Previously, I studied at Concordia University in Montreal gaining a BFA in Sculpture (With Great Distinction) and I also studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland earning a BA in Technical & Production Arts. I have shown my work in several group shows in Montreal, Glasgow and at MIX NYC 2012, in Brooklyn, New York. My poetry has been published in New Writing Scotland 34 and has been shortlisted in the Jupiter Artland: Inspired to Write Poetry and Prose Competition. In addition, I serve on the volunteer Executive Committee of the Scottish Artists Union.   

Artist Statement

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. Much of my sculpture and performance works have been ephemeral, time based projects. Furthermore, transformation and entropy have been central themes within my practice.
