I’ll be one of over 50 Artists and Makers across the East Neuk of Fife who open their studios on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June, Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July. 10.30am to 5pm each day. Find our more at www.eastneukopenstudios.org .

My work uses generally landscape, found objects and the natural environment to metaphor love, life and loss. As one of many who started wild swimming in the Covid pandemic, I’ve been mesmerised by the physical and emotional impact of this directly immersive encounter with nature. I’m delighted, therefore, to have been awarded Creative Scotland funding to develop IMMERSE, a 2 year project to explore our relationships with water.

In addition to the Open Studio weekends this summer, I plan to run IMMERSE exhibition/events in September/October, along with another Bowhouse/ENOS exhibition in November. Hope to catch up with some of you along the way!

Meanwhile quality A4 and A3 prints (Old Mill 300g) of some of my work are available at IndigoCrowShop@Etsy
