I am a visual artist based in Argyll. Working at the intersection between craft and environmental art, I use tactility and humour to explore our relationships to our environment and each other.

My work is underpinned by my academic background in Social Geography and sustainability, and informed by research into environmental and social context. 

Excluding the use of new materials as far as possible, I find, barter and re-use, letting chance and connection dictate the process.  Site-specific projects respond to particular environments and communities, seeking to invite connection and conversation.
