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.
The Atopic Art project that I have been working on for the last year will be showcased in Edinburgh for the first time as part of Bio and Beyond visual art exhibition at Summerhall for the Edinburgh International Science Festival 2016! Alongside the exhibition program I will also be running creative drop-in workshops; Bedtime Balencing Act
This exhibition was curated by ASCUS, who are a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the arts and sciences together. Based in Summerhall, we run events, curate exhibitions, commissions work, runs artist residencies and much more. Through our work we also strive to help academics engage the public through the arts. Our latest project is to open the ASCUS Lab at Summerhall: a publicly accessible laboratory for experimentation in art and science. To find out more, please visit the ASCUS website.

I work on lots of different kinds of projects and sometimes it can be hard to keep track of what I up to!
