I’m an artist from Glasgow specialising in Painting, Printmaking, Collage and Poetry. I am also a Freelance Creative Workshop Facilitator and Creative Producer. I am currently completing an MA in Applied Arts and Social Practice at Queen Margaret University.

I believe in helping to drive socially engaged Participatory Arts activities and have vast experience working with community groups in Glasgow and beyond. Past collaborations and clients include: Sleeping Giants, Scottish Metal Health Arts Festival, Articulate Cultural Trust, MILK Cafe, Firefly Arts, The Bold Collective, The Fostering Network Young Advocates, The Women’s Support Project, Queen’s Cross Housing Association, Mackintosh At The Willow and Project Ability.

From 2023-24 I was lead artist with The Empowering Women Panel, working with women from across Scotland in the planning and creation of participatory artworks and ‘artivist’ approaches using a combination of visual arts techniques including linoprint, collage, drawing and painting. This was designed to help participants convey their experiences at an accountability event attended by senior decision-makers in Scottish Government. In particular, it helped present some of the findings from a peer research project on the cost of living crisis in a visual and engaging way.

I have also lead Glasgow Connected Arts Network’s Participatory Arts Short Course (PASC) and Articulate’s Creative Assistant training.

My visual art practice primarily revolves around the cultural construction of the female body and identity in a capitalist, patriarchal society. By creating bold, multi – layered works I question the kinds of imagery seen in advertising, whilst favouring the body’s sensual and biological elements. I also explore nature and environment, sexuality, feminism, emotional expression and impulsive painting, through a combination of collage, poetry and abstract painting.

I was the Membership and Communications Coordinator with Glasgow Connected Arts Network for 4.5 years and can offer my skills in Marketing & Comms / Social Media / Creative Production / Project Planning / Fundraising to other organisations on a freelance basis. I can create visually appealing marketing materials, manage social media campaigns, increase engagement and organisational awareness, produce, monitor and evaluate creative projects and events.
