Statement

Flowers have been a central subject to my work since 2003, depicting them in different ways and contexts through painting, drawing, mixed media and installation . Over the years my ambitions for them have grown from straight portaiture to more complex compositions and ideas.

‘Votive Offerings’ is my current and ongoing project. Begun in 2014, it is a series of portrayals of wild flowers I have made and left around Scotland, and further afield. The work explores the motif of the posy as gift, prayer or message, as well as the poetics of the act of picking, making and leaving the posies in different environments or locations.
