About

I am a visual artist based in Dundee, Scotland. My paintings and prints combine expressive painterly forms and linear drawing, melding analogue and digital processes. Recurring symbols are used in place of words, describing feelings, dreamy, contemplative, mindful.

I use ink and salt in my paintings. I hand grind my Japanese Sumi ink, which takes time, patience, and balance. The ink is made of ash. The passage of time is part of the ink itself. There is a connection to this medium that echoes inside of all of us.

I work as a professional printmaker, and I’m passionate about zines and artist’s books. I am one of the co-founders of Riso Soup, a Risograph publication project that is part of Dundee Print Collective.
