Biography

Working with abstract sculptural forms,my work combines an exploration of contemporary visual culture and technology with art-historical references.The resultant 'fusion' pieces are constructed from everyday materials. They are set at a human scale and explore colour, form and textural arrangements, utilizing collage and assemblage techniques in their construction. Ultimately my work explores developmental sculptural responses to contemporary visual culture, via its materials and imagery. A process of re-forming leads to a reinterpretation and conceptualization of this very imagery.

Career path: I attended George Street school of Art (Dumfries) 1994-96 and subsequently continued at Grays School of Art, Aberdeen. In 2000 I graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art and since then I have exhibited in both solo and group shows across the uk.
