“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”
Art & creativity has been a huge part of my being since childhood and brings a joy I couldn’t be without. Since studying sculpture at GSA, my practice has been wide and varied. I make bespoke canvasses for private clients, paint large scale
wall murals, (usually for care homes), that evoke good memories for the viewers.
I enjoy up-cycling and love giving a new lease of life to items that otherwise, would go to landfill.
Working from Riverside Studios, I deliver workshops to various groups of people, including vulnerable adults & kids. I take great pleasure in meeting and collaborating with like minded, inspirational souls! Artists stimulate us and nurture our curiosity. Keep curious!
“… & then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough? “
Vincent Van Gogh
I am secretary to the board of directors of Moving Arts Scotland and take responsibility for the management of Riverside Studios Shop.
I jointly project manage our CACTI and work with Southcraig Special School on the development of arts & crafts workshops for young adults with severe physical and learning disabilities, through their school leavers programme.
