Statement

My works are assemblages that investigate concern for ecological issues, the materials I use are often experimental. The sculptures drawn from a “found-object” cocktail of elements, forming assemblages that tell of man’s conflict with nature.
Through these sometimes surreal associations, I explore the sense of liminality inherent in the world, the constant flux that is experienced on a daily basis.

Biography

I became a mature student and achieved a National Certificate in Art/Design and Craft at Shetland College. Going on to study in the Hebrides completing the 1st and 2nd year of the BA in fine art with Lews Castle College at Taigh Chearsabhagh North Uist. The environmental focus of the course was inspiring, looking closely at the physical landscape of the island, the use of materials as well as the elements of wind, water, and light, also man’s intervention and place within the environment. Completing my Hons BA in Fine Art with The University of Highlands and islands of Moray College Elgin.
