photographic prints and textiles
I am an Edinburgh based photographic artist and designer applying my images to a range of materials and surfaces to create beautiful yet functional art, such as light features, soft furnishings, bespoke cushion covers, wall hangings, bags, tableware /mats and mugs , digitally printed from my portfolio of botanical and abstract images .
My work is influenced by many years experimenting with slide-making and projection techniques. I am fascinated with the play of light and shadow and scale, and am particularly drawn to the use of light to reveal the translucent, delicate quality and intricate patterns and shapes found in nature when seen up close and magnified, whether it be through the lens of a camera, projector or more recently that of a microscope.
