"I am a professional contemporary artist. My creative practice is process-based and currently, I am exploring drawing in its broadest sense, creating sculptural drawings and art installations. The materials I use are either recycled or upcycled, from plastics to newspaper, found objects & fabrics.”

“Currently based in Scotland, I am a practicing, contemporary artist and mentor. My work has been exhibited across the U.K and abroad, with recent participation in Geuzenmaand 2020, Vlaardingen and at WAD, Delft, the Netherlands and at SpudWORKS, New Forest, England, U.K. 2020.

Commissions are held in both the private and corporate sector, for example - Reuters, Microsoft, Corinthia Hotel London W1,( The British Art Project), Logica, Ballymore Properties, Canary Wharf, London, The Dokkae project, Saudi and DGRI, Dumfries & Galloway Scotland.

In 2016, I was awarded a Visual Arts Residency award from UpLand Arts cic in partnership with Creative Scotland, at the prestigious Cove Park, Argyll and Bute, Scotland, where with financial and emotional support, further development of my practice could be explored.

Presently, I am putting together a new body of work for an exhibition supported by funding from CABN (Creative Arts Business Network) along with Creative Scotland. I am also an Open Studio Tutor for Glasgow School of Arts, Widening Participation Programme.”
