Originally from Edinburgh, I currently live and work in London. I studied my BA in Painting and Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art (2009-13), where I found my love of DIY art shows and artist led spaces which I have been continuing to explore in London. I moved to London in 2013 to study on the Drawing Year at the Royal Drawing School. After graduating I stayed in London, lived on a canal boat and focused on making paintings as well as teaching. In 2019, I started my MFA with a full scholarship award in Painting at the Slade School of Fine Art.
I have in the last few years got involved with artist led spaces and exhibitions. In 2020, I opened and ran my own exhibiting space on a London narrow boat called ‘The Narrow Gallery’. This was in response to not being able to see work in person and the exhibition were on the outside of the boat for passers-by to see. It shows small scale work and over 15 artists from the UK and Europe.
Since graduating from the Slade in 2021 I have been exhibiting in London and internationally. This year I had a residency at Leveld Kunstnartun in Norway and last Year I had an artist residency at Cyprus Collage of Art. I also had my first solo Show in Demark at Galerie Wolfsen. I have also been organising and curating artist exhibitions. One was a group show ‘Snakes on a Picture Plane’ at the UK Mexican Art Society in Kings Cross, it consisted of multi-disciplinary artworks ranging from painting, sculpture and video.
