I am a Scottish Graduate Artist based in Brighton, England. I studied at Edinburgh College of Art participating in a 4 year Painting BA(Hons) Degree and a study exchange at the Hungarian University of Fine Art in Budapest, Hungary. I graduated in July 2016 and have since continued pursuing my artistic career.
Within my practice I mainly engage with imagery that is both ambiguous and provocative. I turn the focus towards the viewer, highlighting aspects of their preconceptions in order to ultimately provoke a dialogue concerning the field of ideas raised by each artworks subject.
The compositions I create are designed to perceive an image of obscurity. I am currently focusing on the fusion of classism with contemporary to evoke reaction by conceptually and visually communicating current social issues. I have previously demonstrated this through the use of the female form in combination with various intricate textures and details. I am continuing to create oil paintings of sculptural masterpieces from renaissances onwards connecting us to the past and what lies ahead of us.
