I graduated from Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art with an MA (Hons) Fine Art with distinction in 2008. I’ve been a full time artist since 2014 after stepping down as CEO of Scottish charity Art in Healthcare.
I explore how incorporating new technology with my artwork can be used to more actively engage the viewer. We’re amid a digital (r)evolution and my aim is to investigate how this technology can enhance or alter the viewer experience. Every work of art tells a story and AR, near field communication (NFC) tags, video, social media links and the other digital elements I incorporate enable me to present an artwork and its narrative in innovative and captivating ways or to even entirely change the way one perceives my work.
