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.
We have been working away on the development of the Woodcraft Folk's new heritage wesbite. Working with the Media Co-op on this project has been fantastic, but it was working with the Elfins (aged 6-9) and Pioneers (aged 9-13) that was the real treat for me!
Taking inspiration from the Woodcraft folk archives, I had begun exploring colors, shapes and iconography that we could bring to the new website...
I planned the workshops around Woodcraft Folk badges, which are lovely objects in them selves and lend themselves to being abstracted and explored.
After a few hours of creative chaos, the young people involved in the project came up with some beautiful deisgns which will be used in the final site design!
I work on lots of different kinds of projects and sometimes it can be hard to keep track of what I up to!
