I have recently graduated with a first class Honours degree in Art and Design from Stirling University, welcome to my site!
I am an installation artist but dabble in painting, drawing and photography, my main practice involves found objects and documentation projects. Please take a look at my blog to keep updated with my artistic journey, or look around my previous work, projects and exhibitions.
The area that I’m most interested in pursuing is community art and have volunteered within the community in the past, and currently volunteer at a gallery and an art workshop group in Glasgow.
My work explores found objects and their connection to their previous owners and my recent projects have investigated varying range of objects that can be found in different areas and how these objects can reflect on the residents of those areas. What I am most interested in is portraying these objects as artefacts or evidence of human activity, inspired by museum displays and exhibits.
Artefacts are often discussed in the context of the past and are described as being a way of bringing us face-to-face with an ancient civilisation or culture; the intention of my works is to bring the viewer face-to-face with the people that exist now. The objects displayed in museums are often the most mundane and ordinary types of objects as they are a reflection of the everyday life of historic or foreign cultures, these works intend to use the same regular types of objects and portray them as evidence of who we are today.
