Curriculum Vitae

Education

Attended Glasgow School of Art 1989-93. Graduated BA (Hons) Fine Art. Exchange to Brighton College of Art, January - March 1992.

Practice/Projects

Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art, has continued practice as a painter, working in WASPS studios in the East End of Glasgow. Exhibiting regularly in London and throughout the UK, in group shows and one-man exhibitions. Recent larger work depicts people travelling through half-remembered spaces, situations and scenes based on memories both real and imagined. These paintings are partly an attempt to balance a sense of movement with a sense of stillness. In recent years has undertaken two large portrait commissions and this renewed interest in portraiture has led to an ongoing series of portraits of friends and acquaintances.

Won Towry Best Painting prize at the National Open Art Competition at the Royal College of Art, London 2013. Collaborated on a number of multi-media projects with Mischief-la-bas performance group and other artists, culminating in projects at the Arches and Tramway in Glasgow and the Albany Theatre in London. Organised two large-scale mural projects, in collaboration with East End Community Arts, for Greater Glasgow Health Board. Devised and ran “Face to Face” photography project in the East End of Glasgow. This Arts Council funded project culminated in a temporary public artwork at the East End Festival in Glasgow.
