"The exploration, transformation and combination of materials has always been a crucial part of my practice. Growing up in the countryside, I have always been drawn to nature to source the materials I work with. From this relationship, I have developed my ongoing study and love of wood. I look to showcase the wood’s intrinsic natural properties adding materials and finishes as a counterbalance and contrast. My aim as an artist is to guide viewers back to these natural resources, and thus, back to the meditative powers of nature that we tap into when confronted by it. But also, to explore and question its evolving interaction with human interference."
Born in 1995, I studied at Edinburgh College of Art between 2015 and 2019 gaining a BA (Hons) in Sculpture. I was awarded the Royal Scottish Academy’s Barns-Graham Travel in May 2019 and completed a micro-residency at Hospitalfields, Arbroath in April 2018.
NEWS: Like everyone else I have been affected by COVID 19. There have been changes made to the exhibition schedule this year and I will keep the website updated as things get clearer. My solo presentation at The Scottish Gallery has been confirmed July 1st - 25th and the Royal Scottish Academy show will is now likely to be held in January 2021 with the exact dates to be confirmed. I am still working and very much looking forward to the end of lock down.
