Artist Statement
I am interested in the poignancy of memory traces and how we travel through life leaving marks, line and a narrative upon the landscape both physically and metaphysically. My research and photography have focused on familiar landscapes and in particular forests and thistles. These inspirations are the source of my paintings, which are concerned with the exploration of paint, colour and an organic process led practice.

As Thomas A Clark surmised, “...for the right understanding of a landscape, information must come to the intelligence from all the senses”.


I am an Australian/Scotish artist working and living in Edinburgh and I have a studio at St Margaret House. I am currently undertaking a MFA in Art and Humanities at Duncan of Jordanstone 2017/2018. I am a professional member at ESW on the Friends committee at Leith School of Art in 2018.
