Having worked within Criminal justice, Development, Education, Health and Research settings with a wide variety of community groups I have developed an interest in how art works in unusual locations.
I was born in Scotland and my practice is as an artist/educator/researcher. Currently I am based in London, UK.
After a Degree in Visual Arts at the University of the Arts, London (1st class honours) I completed a Masters in Community Art Practice with distinction at Goldsmiths University, London .
Alongside working on personal projects and exhibiting in the UK and overseas I have developed socially engaged art projects with the Fiji Arts Council, made artwork with inmates in a prison in the UK, schools in Mozambique, children in a Romanian homeless shelter, young offenders in East London, residents in a psychiatric hospital and communities living with HIV/AIDS in the UK and Kenya.
