My work is about following each piece and being intuitively
open to an unspoken dialogue that spans a breath of choices and unknown exit points.

For me being an artist is an act of prosaic looking that feeds making for heterogeneous artefacts that confront the real world. I see my work as an anthology of objects, each being a unique incomplete tangible question that collects personal provenance. What stimulates my work and research is the ongoing amassments of stuff I collect and own. Obsessions happen without acknowledgement and my inventory shows no boundaries to objects, just an attraction that I find it hard to explain other than: we find each-other.

Bring Back The Dead (Lucky Dip)

This is my piece submitted for the Bring Back the Dead exhibition at the Whitespace Gallery Edinburgh September 2013


Lucky Dip was born in 2013 under a wandering star from materials collected from a harvest of the shiny. The beloved brooch is child of Mark Mcleish whom worn it only once in the void of a shirt collar. Will be dearly missed but never forgotten and will always be my Wednesday child (full of woe). I wish you many new adventures. RIP
