Reverb is the current Visual Arts Scotland Annual Exhibition. It is now online until the 29th of April 2022.

I was pleased to have this artist book Haar (in isolation) selected for the show. Big thanks to VAS for choosing my work and also for the Nancy Graham memorial Book Award.

The Rest is Memory II has now been acquired by Edinburgh College of Art for its artist book archive housed in George Square Library here in Edinburgh.

Made in the form of a wooden block puzzle, the blocks are lined with monotypes on Japanese paper.

It was originally displayed as part of the Nature Works Exhibition at the Upright Gallery  in Edinburgh in November/ December 2021.

I have been selected to take part in the current Society of Scottish Artists 123rd Annual Exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy. The show opened yesterday and runs until the 23rd November 2021.

I would like to say a hearty thank you to the Society of Scottish Artists, both for their hard work in getting this particular show on the road and for their support of me and my work.

Thank you also to the Paintbox School of Art for their award – a truly lovely surprise and a great boost.

Here & Now

I am taking part in the Here & Now exhibition currently showing at the Tatha Gallery in Newport-on-Tay, Fife. Online exhibitions are all very well but it’s great to be taking part in a real, live show again – in an actual gallery. Here & Now was organised in conjunction with the     Society of Scottish Artists.

Bound:Unbound

Being an artist can be a solitary life, but in the last year I have hugely enjoyed being a part of Bound:Unbound – a group of artists who make artist books based here in Scotland. This collective meets regularly to discuss the scope of the artist book, and to plan exhibitions, collaborations and commissions.

What makes the group so special  – to me – is the diverse practices of each artist. Bound:Unbound are; Felicity Bristow, Liza Green,

Susie Leiper, Lynda Wilson and Susie Wilson.
