Hello! I am a Scottish artist, designer and researcher based in Glasgow. My key area of interest is in collaborative projects that explore health, narrative and participation. I have a Masters of Design from Glasgow School of Art. My work encompasses visual arts, illustration, graphic design and delivery in the community. I am an associate service designer and illustrator with the Institute of Research and Innovation (IRISS) where I deliver participatory design workshops, conduct research, support co-design and create visual solutions focused on the world of social care.
It was an absolute pleasure to be asked back to work with GCIN, in their lovely community flat. We were working on artwork for Glasgow's '16 Days of Action' against domestic violence. The session focussed on the themes of "Peace in the Home to Peace in the World". Working with artist Belinda Gilbert Scott, we explore Matisse's Cut outs, looking at how we could communicate these themes using abstract shapes and colour,
The workshop was great fun with everyone getting on board and creating some lovely work. The finished collages will be made into posters to be exhibited around Glasgow- Keep your eyes peeled!
I work on lots of different kinds of projects and sometimes it can be hard to keep track of what I up to!
