Lives and works in the United Kingdom
I am a sculptor carving in wood, creating relief, wall mounted stories around my life. The places I have been - Kintore, Scotland (my home village), my time in Italy, my recent move to the South West England; memories of my childhood, looking out my bedroom window in a small Scottish village hoping for a different life, being a student in the 1960s in Aberdeen, working in fashion houses in Italy; also the people from my life, my parents, my family, and artists who have influenced me. All these jumbled thoughts become a narrative, slightly surreal, relief carving.
I trained in Aberdeen, Scotland, won a scholarship to work in fashion houses in Italy and France before teaching in various art schools in England. I am now a fine art relief wood carver
I have exhibited widely from Saatchi Gallery, London Centrespace Bristol, Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, Portico Gallery Manchester, Weston Park Shropshire, Grain Gallery Sherbourne, Cartwright Gallery Bradford, Tricycle Theatre, London, Salford Art Gallery, Castle Cary Art Gallery, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham.
