I am a visual artist who lives and works in Glasgow. My practice explores somatic expression. Combining movement, sound and gesture I create work which is visceral, and captures my personal connection between materials and surface. It reveals the unconscious flow of energy which occurs in the making process. Every mark I make is a trace of my individual hand, and reflects the constantly changing nature of our bodies and emotions.
In 2016 I relocated back to Glasgow to transition into working in the creative industries. Since then, I have co-founded two creative Community Interest Companies, Print Clan and Glasgow Initiative of Facilitation & Therapy (GIFT). I am currently director and creative facilitator for GIFT. There are three strands to my professional work: co-facilitating group art therapy for children and young people, running community arts projects and advocacy work with children and young people.
