My work evolves through close consideration of landscape contexts and images. These provide starting points for me to look, ask questions, consider and generate contemporary art practice from. I work mainly outside, exploring a space first and then creating work from what I find.
For this project I explored the ancient geological site on the East coast of Scotland, called Skateraw. I made drawings in dialogue with the ancient rocks. See the work here
Patrick Geddes's 19th Century pocket garden in Edinburgh became a site of investigation and making for me. I researched the origins of the garden and explored Geddes's theories of social, cultural and environmental improvement through the integration of green spaces into cities. I regenerated the garden according to Geddes's original vision through a series of art works which you can see here
