I'm an artist and writer. My artwork involves exploring embodiment and perception. I often use images relating to the sea. I live and work in Argyll. I'm currently working on a poetry collection about the waters of the west coast, as well as painting and working as life drawing tutor. 'Nervous Mermaid' is a light hearted image of a Mermaid who can't swim, but is crammed into a frame. 'Shadow Landscape' is exploring ideas of how we affect and are affected by the landscape, how our stories and myths are woven into the land/sea scape.
