I am a Painting and Printmaking student in my final year at Glasgow School of Art. As a contemporary artist, I use traditional methods of marbling to create patterns on different surfaces: from hand dying silks to printing the patterns digitally on large textiles, on paper and silk gloves or using a photocopier. Here I examine the handmade and the digital in different scales. Considering marbling as a form of printmaking mixed with painting, I capture moving pattern into a fixed image. By printing this image onto tactile silk, I create a sensory experience combining techniques of handmade and fabricated, the analogue and the digital.
I specialise in abstract mixed media, exploring repetition
in nature. My work experiments with the art of marbling with an
emphasis on how materials interact with each other. I combine
naturalistic and watery motifs within mywork.
From hand dying silks on small stretchers to getting them digitally
printed on large fabric stretchers, I create a sensory experience of
marble designs in a range of scales. Using a variety of techniques and
methods, such as painting and printmaking, I create a full sensory
experience that connects the audience with the alluring tactile
materials of pure silk.
In 2019 I was awarded the John and Mabel Craig Scholarship and have received regular commissions to fund my studies which shows my proactive attitude towards my education. In 2022 the Faculty of Science at Glasgow University purchased two pieces; a collaboration with a scientist at the University during the ‘Pint of Science’ festival. Currently I am working in Glasgow Museums as a gallery assistant, invigilating exhibitions and as a first point of contact. As an experienced artist, I have had multiple solo and group exhibitions within and outside my institution.
