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.

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!
