My solo exhibition at Doubtfire Gallery in Edinburgh opens on 16th February, running through to 19th March 2022.


I will be in the gallery on Saturday 19th February between 2pm and 4pm.


I am showing a quieter more reflective series of work in this exhibition. My work has developed from my experience during the pandemic being at home with my family. It gave me time to develop and reflect on my drawing and mixed media work, which I based on the trees around my home – watching them move into the different seasons. My glass work is augmented by some bright, colour Edinburgh drawings based on the architecture of the city.


Works are for sale on receipt of this news feed. 


Full exhibition catalogue with prices and dimensions of work can be viewed at:


Opening hours:  Wednesday to Sunday 12 – 4pm

Happy to arrange an appointment outwith these hours. Please email:

These little "scrappy dugs" are made from some of the scraps of coloured glass from my bigger projects. I like the idea of being able to use up more of the glass. I'm selling these for £40 and I'm donating £20 from each sale to Teenage Cancer Trust. I can make you a "scrappy dug" in rainbow colours or if you like shades of blues/greens. So please get in touch and email me to place your order.

I am thrilled  to have been awarded funding from Creative Scotland through the Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards (VACMA) to support a two week residency in 2020 during which I plan to develop my skills and gain new approaches in drawing, to experiment with 2d and 3d components to create mixed media pieces inspired by the town of Nérac, the surrounding area, the changes in the light, architecture and culture.
