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.
I have been having an amazing few weeks working with the GCIN mapping group. I have worked with them on a few workshops- looking at drawing landmarks, drawing out trails and bring all the information they had collectd toegther into a zine
"Together with Josie Vallely our mappers this week created a zine about Govan. Using drawings, stencils, transfers and text they created a booklet with places they'd recommend to people who are new to Govan. Get your own copy from the PI soon..."
This is the start of a longer project developing Zines with Lots of different people all over Glasgow, as part of Refugee week 2014. Watch this space for more info!
I work on lots of different kinds of projects and sometimes it can be hard to keep track of what I up to!
