Having just graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design with a BA(hons) in Fine Art, I am now keen to continue my exploration into environmental art and to work with other artists and people with similar interests.
My main disciplines are printmaking and sculpture, either individually or in a combination of both. I predominantly work with wood for my sculptures adding other elements like plaster or painting. I have also developed the application of screenprinting on to plywood based structures.
Ecology and the relationship between humans, nature and the environment are the pivotal focuses of my work. I have a particular interest in the ecology of forests, the life that they sustain, their relationship with humans both past and present and the emotions they evoke.
These places ground me and any anxieties I have with the modern world seem to disappear. They provide a haven and it will be mankind’s loss if we fail to maintain our connection with nature, focussing solely on the objects of a material world.
By producing my artworks, I hope to draw the viewer’s attention to the beauty and importance of nature in order that it is not forgotten about in the modern world.
