I am a Scottish visual artist that specialises in drawing and painting. As well as working specifically within the fine arts sector it is my personal aspiration to continue to expand my work within socially impacting artist residencies that educate and contribute to the growth of poor schools and communities. In doing this I hope to physically find a way to bridge social gaps through the arts. By teaching and facilitating creative workshops, leading community sessions and raising funds, and materials through campaigning I believe communities can begin to thrive together on a more vibrant frequency. Collaborating with other like-minded artists to deliver these projects, I believe we can use creativity to impact local change, educating and spreading powerful messages about the importance of creativity, leadership, relationships, health and personal growth. I have spent the last two years carrying out International artist residencies in Spain, Italy, Kenya and India. Settling in India between 2016 and 2017, I taught art lessons at Zorba the Buddha, one of the worlds largest open faith spiritual centres in Delhi. Also in 2017 I co-implemented the second edition of an arts development initiative called Colour the Community, that seeks to introduce arts education in under privileged schools in Kenya. This is an initiative that we hope to grow and carry out every year across Africa and Asia. I have recently relocated to Portugal where I spent 6 years of my childhood, settling in Lisbon to develop my career as a full-time artist. My work is located at a counter-intuitive position, between the visible and the invisible, created to address the gap between social interactions and language. Through drawing and painting; the works aim to bring awareness to the invisible boundaries that are created by the mind. Bearing the question of how to cultivate a compassionate society, it seeks to expose invisible tensions, born from cultural difference. My research observes visibly shared histories, unique characteristics, varying traditions and contemporary culture. At times the artwork blurs the lines between identity, time or place, in an effort to encourage conversations across cultures, to remind the viewer that we are a collective public, regardless of race, religion, gender, age or cultural background. Using widely sourced imagery and juxtaposing them together to re-represent people, my work seeks to encourage unity across cultures.
