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.
In the build up to refugee week I have been working with a number of community organisations who work with refugees and asylum seekers to create a zine exploring themes of Welcome. The zine will be co-produced with a variety of people- refugees and asylum seekers currently living in Glasgow,local people in the community, and Students of Glasgow School of Art.
In the coming months I will be bringing all of this work together to create a Zine which will include stories, ideas, poems, and artwork.
On the 22nd of May, a few weeks before the Zine’s launch, I ran a drop in workshop, along with some amazing helpers, in the Vic where we worked with students to contribute content to the zine and work on it’s curation.
I work on lots of different kinds of projects and sometimes it can be hard to keep track of what I up to!
