is a UK based video artist.
Having graduated from Glasgow School of Art Painting and Drawing Department in 2002 my practice has moved towards digital media and I am currently studying film at the SAE Institute. I am intrigued by how I can creatively combine film and drawing in a more expansive way than traditional animation and aim to reference creative processes of drawing through film. My painting practice was concerned with themes of repetition, sequence, the fragment and the whole. I hand traced macro photographs and used them as components to be compiled into independent singular forms. By using digital formats along side drawing works I can explore my interests within video art of process and fragmentation.
I worked for two years filming and producing short documentaries for refugee and asylum seeker groups through BTCV Scotland. As a camera operator I am working on Dead Mans Clothes, an independent Scottish film and a documentary about the Homeless World Cup to be released later this year.
I am currently production assistant for Silver Tongue an independent feature film which will be shot in Scotland later this year.
