I am a Glasgow/London based artist working across a range of disciplines including painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, woodcarving, animation and photography. I have been investigating how through my work, I am able to see the urban spaces I often take for granted afresh, and full of unusual potential. Long walks following the Thames and the Clyde with no clear intention, drawing, writing and picking up objects as I go, allow me to interact with cities’ intricacies and minutiae which might otherwise go unseen. In the studio the things I have gathered outside take on a new life; the mistakes and unclear elements of the drawings are as much a part of my memory of the walks. I have been transcribing these into paintings, prints, drawings, woodcarvings and ceramic works in which the images become more mysterious and fragmented, interlaced with invented narratives. I often work with materials that I have collected on walks, such as clay dug from roadsides and river beds, and pigments ground from bits of broken brick, terracotta and stone.
