A bit about me.

After graduating from Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen in 2009 with an Honours in Painting and again in 2010 with a Masters of Fine Art, I have been fortunate to have had over a decade to develop my practice. My work is a frenzy of material and processes, a direct representation of my mind and how I create. Heavily inspired by the natural landscape of the North East of Scotland my work borders into the abstract and explores fleeting moments and feelings. Growing up on the Moray coast I have a subconscious pull towards the land and sea as well as the flora of the area, tied up in memories of walks and times exploring. Living in a city now has me dreaming of wilderness, making me appreciate any time I can venture out and collect moments of raw natural energy and beauty. This all filters through into my practice, a desire to create and to remember those feelings and experiences, they are completely symbiotic. I believe there is a real familiarity in my work, viewers too can feel the essence and the intimacy even if they have never been acquainted with this part of the World. I work organically and rhythmically in layers of mixed media. Pieces tell me what they want to be rather than me coming at them with preconceived ideas and plans, they materialise out of the ether and guide me to completion.
