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 often deals with marginalised subjects of a difficult nature. I am inspired by discomfort and feel the intuitive need to dig into our visceral reflexes. I’m intrigued by what these subjects and our reactions to them say about us. I believe in getting under the skin of what I’m investigating, and I strive to convey the nuances that I discover through my practice. My work communicates this in varying ways and as a result, my practice flows through different mediums such as photography, printmaking, sculpture, painting, and installation.
