I am an artist living and working in Edinburgh, Scotland. My primary medium is sculpture but my practise is somewhat eclectic, encompassing artists books, print making, video, sound and photography.

I consider myself a maker, concerned with formal sculptural qualities, foregrounding process and materiality. The visual, tactile and presence of the material are important are important aspects of my work, while gesture and repetition are common elements.

My work is rooted in a socio-political context typically responding to observations seen or heard. The way I work and the sculptural language that I use demands a particular approach to research.
