Thank you for visiting my virtual abode. I’m a visual artist based in Glasgow, UK, where I am currently completing my BA(Hons) in Fine Art: Painting & Printmaking at the Glasgow School of Art. I will be graduating in 2020, class of COVID 19. This is currently in progress. Idk what’s happening.

My work spreads itself fluidly across different mediums such as photography, painting, sculpture and installation. The subjects I’m interested in tend to vary but they are always driven by the same relentless desire to peel back the meaning of our normative beliefs and cultural ideals.

I’m inspired by objects and situations which cause me to pause and ponder, sometimes with a twitch of unease. It’s always that particular element of uneasiness that tells me there’s something fascinating to be uncovered. My previous work has examined subjects such as authoritarianism and childhood, technology and privacy, sexualised and emotional labour, and expressions of femininity.
