Lives in Perthshire, Scotland

 

I am a painter and printmaker who studied at the University of Dundee, Scotland graduating with BA Hons (1st class) and a Masters in Fine art.  I have

exhibited in Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and Perth and internationally in Brasil, Sweden and Lithuania.

 

My current work concerns juxtapositions of visual elements, combining delicate monochromatic and colour surfaces to produce series of works that have

a group presence and transform space through their qualities of stillness, sensual lightness and shadow.

                                                                                             

The works shown here are from a series of prints made at Dundee Contemporary Arts print studio in Scotland, where I have been a member since 2001.

The etchings were built up through a gradual process with five or six worked on simultaneously.  Subsequent layers of thin colour were then applied to

the surfaces of the zinc plates to create a sense of transparency. The chine-collé pieces included are unique works embodying abstract shapes using

delicate Japanese handmade papers.
