My work uses 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.

So… lots in the pipeline, including Open Studio weekends in June, IMMERSE events in September/October and 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
