I studied Fine Art at Edinburgh University and College of Art, gaining a 2:1 MA (Hons) in 1997. I have been practicing as a professional artist ever since, working and exhibiting throughout the UK and abroad. My practice is firmly rooted in drawing and I love to employ a mixed media approach in my work, often combining traditional drawing techniques with those of printing and text. My work is concerned with the human figure, nature, science and sometimes magic. I have worked professionally with St Andrews University, Art in Healthcare, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Fife Cultural Trust, Perth & Kinross Council and Tate Gallery, Liverpool. I have been been a committee member with Visual Arts Scotland, and given workshops across a variety of venues for adults and children. I also teach Life Drawing.
