I am an artist and project organiser in Glasgow. I studied at the Glasgow School of Art and graduated from M Litt Fine Art Practice – Sculpture in 2017 and from BA (Hons) Sculpture and Environmental Art in 2012.

Exhibitions around UK include ‘Traces Below Stairs’ (Pollok House, Glasgow, 2017), ‘Holding’ (NHS Forth Valley Royal Hospital, 2016), ‘RSA New Contemporaries’ (RSA, Edinburgh, 2013).

Recent projects include: collaborative research ‘responding to those readings’ (2017) with Saira Edwards and Olivia Jones; and an on-going in collaboration with Katie Reid as MMIM (May Meet In Mutual) to organise discussion led projects for artists.
