I’m an Artist and Educator who has experience working in community settings, contemporary arts organisations and greenspaces. My individual art practice spans video, sculpture and installation – I often create immersive, single-colour installations with an element of digital work on display. I’m a graduate from the University of Edinburgh MA Fine Art course, and I spent my time there developing my practice and undertaking embedded and at-distance research in socially-engaged arts organisations in Scotland. My dissertation looked at how art is accessed at the percieved Scottish ‘margins’ – be they geographic and/or socio-economic.
Working in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh’s Creative Programmes and the outdoor context of Jupiter Artland, I have repeatedly witnessed the deep impact of creatively engaging with art and nature, and I believe it is vital to broaden access to both. Having just moved to Glasgow, I’m now searching for an opportunity to utilise my developed knowledge and to creatively facilitate engagement with art, nature, and our local places.
