Artist Statement

As a 'city kid', avid rambler of Scotland and virtual adventurer, my practise is hugely influenced by the navigation across digital culture and immediate realities; our regular transitions between natural, built and programmed environments. I strive to create spaces that encourage more from the viewer than just being that of spectator, to surround and require active navigation, and foster a sense of being central to the experience.

My painting, printmaking and photography takes traditional processes which are rendered to convey a digital aesthetic, action or virtual platform. Blending hand crafting techniques with digitally inspired effects and processes, I aim to offer windows into the narrative of liminal, real-virtual, heterotopic spaces.
