PERSONAL STATEMENT

 

I'm a designer maker with 10 years experience working and exhibiting in Scotland. I aim to make work which is a reflection of our heritage and design past using both traditional and digital techniques. I aim to make work and projects which are joyful and celebrate our lives; working with others to create positive solutions and interventions within our communities.
