With my recent work I am aiming to advance as an artist who uses practical tactics to handle the study of happiness.


Stimuli for these soundings come from affection, buoyancy and camaraderie – accentuating these themes to evaluate their contribution to the production and motivation of creative inspiration, and explore their conceivable critical currency.


Formerly I have partitioned my practice through two divergent strategies: ‘objects’- static artworks attempting to articulate social situations through representation - and ‘projects’ - a more candidly engaged approach, such as a collaboration or curatorial enterprise.


Currently I am investigating fresh routines to reconcile these segregated procedures.


Keep an eye out for my forthcoming solo presentations in 2011:


‘I’m 26 & I’ve Got Nothing’ at BBC Scotland, Glasgow (Spring)

‘My Five New Friends’ at The Royal Standard, Liverpool (Winter)


Plus a project for New Work Scotland Programme 2011 at Collective, Edinburgh!!
