I am an artist and musician fascinated by the beauty and diversity of natural form. I am drawn to minute, complex patterns and line, recording this information with my etching needle, creating semi-abstract compositions in print.
Each one of my interdisciplinary projects begins with drawing from life the flora and fauna of Perthshire. Linear, tonal and colour studies manifest as soundscapes, as performance work, paintings and prints, exploring our relationship with place through the traditions and rituals we create.
I am interested in the connection between local artforms, such as traditional music and dance, to their place of origin; the way in which the colours and lines of the landscape leave traces in the songs, stories, dances and tunes of a particular place.
