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 just started a new course as part of my Masters programme which is called 'mapping the city'. Our first assignment was to create a map of ourselves. Something I have always loved doing is creating books from scraps- so I painted freely on some large papers and then cut them up to create this book. I experimented with binding after chatting to the lovely Rachel Anna Cocker about the wonders of exposed spines. Take a look!
I work on lots of different kinds of projects and sometimes it can be hard to keep track of what I up to!
