My practice encompasses many mediums both traditional and digital, with sound at its core. My works use sounds and images captured from my journey through life, I then weave electronic textures around them, drawing on the emotions they triggered when first hearing, to invoke an almost meditative experience in the listener.

Artist in residence – St Matthew’s Presents “Nouveau Life”
Part of Scottish and Renfrewshire Mental Health Arts Festival 2017 and Paisley 2021 City of Culture bid.
I had been in residence at St Matthew's Church, Paisley since mid-September 2017 and created a series of installation-based works which are now on permanent display.
The work reflects on the architecture of the building and the various community groups who use it, both now and throughout its history. Combining traditional stained-glass pieces, cutting edge digital technology and community generated art. The exhibition opened to the public on 20th October 2017.

Ten new stained-glass panels created for the front door of St Matthew’s, the design of these was inspired by the building and the architect.
