I am a Scottish artist and designer based in Glasgow. My key area of interest is in collaborative projects that explore place, narrative and participation. My work encompasses painting and drawing, installation, print and delivery in the community. Learn more about my approach and interests in this blog section of my website.

I have always loved working with ceramics- there is something so exciting about creating a solid object from mud! These latest pots are inspired by the colours I was exploring in Applecross- the pinks and creams from skylines and the pearl inside shells, the organic shapes and mark making form the stones and the lichen that grows on them. I really enjoy trying to capture tiny 'landscapes' in the accidents of the glazing process, distilling them down into these domestic objects that hold acts of care and subsistence- a bowl of soup, a pot of coffee.
I work on lots of different kinds of projects and sometimes it can be hard to keep track of what I up to!
