A professional artist/ sculptor based in Shetland, working in a wide variety of mediums including bronze, wood, steel, 3D printed acrylic, found objects and paint. I have been creating sculpture and 3 Dimensional pieces for over 25 years since my degree in Three Dimensional Design. After university, I ran my own architectural design consultancy, specialising in commercial leisure interiors, designing and creating pieces of furniture, interiors and artwork for hotel and restaurant clients. I now focus entirely on creating paintings and sculpture to return to the core of my creativity, opening my eyes to the incredible natural world around me on my remote Shetland Island croft, where I am entirely enveloped by the drive to create and express all that I see and feel. The wilderness in which I live translates into themes running through my work, from abstracted expressive and dynamic shapes and forms, to more literal representations of the wildlife around me. The heritage of the sea greatly interests me, leading me to address what mankind is doing to the marine environment and marine life. I'm also greatly moved by those affected by gender-based violence and lack of freedom of movement of millions around the world, throughout history, and some of my sculptural and photographic work is created to try to empathise with and illustrate these issues. I enjoy working with metal, wood and wax clay to create sculptural forms, as well as found objects, and I use modern and traditional techniques to transform the sculptures, such as bronze casting and 3D scanning and printing, as well as photography, scale, perspective and light to elevate my work. My paintings, often large scale, use acrylic paint with metal leaf and they are created to express my love of the world around me. Solo exhibitions: The Dundas Street Gallery, Edinburgh December 2020 Upcoming: Shetland Museum, Lerwick, Shetland - March 2021 The Whitespace Gallery, Edinburgh - October 2021 The Dundas Street Gallery, Edinburgh - December 2021 Memberships and Associations Visual Arts Scotland Visual Artists Association Open to collaboration and group exhibitions anywhere in the world.
