About the Artist
Blending my background in science, photography, and the antiques & collectables trade with my Orkney & Shetland roots, I use a diverse range of found objects, traditional yarns, antique fabrics, and raw materials to create pieces evocative of the light, land, and sea of Scotland in kiln glass panels, knitted & woven wares, paintings, costumes, and jewellery.
Recent and current works and events of note include:
In Vogue costume production project and Summer-long exhibition at Stirling Castle in conjunction with Historic Environment Scotland.
Promotional artworks with fellow artist David Barbara for Stirling Tourism/Wallace Monument Female 'Hero' Inauguration.
Photographic exhibit at Stirling Uni Pathfoot Art Gallery space as joint winner of their annual photography competition 2016.
Crime fiction novel 'Digging Up the Dead' cover photo for author Dr Vicki Clifford.
Storm, Ardnamurchan painting shortlisted for RSW 136th Winter Exhibition.
Regular photographic assignments for The Bridge newspaper including the BBC filming of Rillington Place and David Tenant's What We Did On Our Holiday. One of these images being deemed Best Photo Supporting an Article (Scottish Press Awards.)

On both open Sundays I can show you how to make miniature hand loom weavings. These dinky wee things can be made into little wall hangings, dolls house rugs or even a piece of textile body adornment! It's a fun and easy workshop for all skill levels and all materials necessary (including straws, wools & yarn, beads, light refreshments, and friendly banter!) will be provided.
If you'd like to take part, do drop me a line. More pics of my little weavings can be found on my Facebook page here : http://tinyurl.com/dinky-weave
Give me a call 07399563427 to book a place, or drop me a line at [email protected]
I'm really looking forward to seeing you on Sunday 11th & 18th June between 1pm and 3pm!
