PROFILE:

profile imageI am an self-motivated and diligent artist specialising in textiles, mixed media, hands-on making, and craft installations.  I am interested in the quality of materials, manipulation, and form, and my sample-based practice explores a wide range of ideas through the process of making.  I have developed my own personal practice alongside teaching in art and crafts and have been a freelance artist-educator since 2015. I have worked with many organisations across Scotland, planning and delivering unique creative workshops and events.  I have a lot of experience in orchestrating public art, running workshops, and working with people of all ages and background on a variety of creative projects.
