I am an artist based in Fife having graduated from the MFA Art, Society and Publics course at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. My practice is based on research and material production around and through the themes of exchange, conversation, observation and transience through the action of walking. These areas of investigation are cornerstones to my practice in that they offer frameworks in which we might view our narratives. Walking, for myself, and the resultant observation and reflection act as a starting point to conjure with ideas about where factual accounting and the fictional meet, where the boundaries between these two states can blur and co-exist. How do we tell stories about the landscape and its people ?
As an artist I am currently walking through a wood in Fife Scotland. I return to the same walk every week making large scale paintings in the wood on big rolls of paper. I am documenting the nature of this space with the changing seasons and weather. The work I am making will be exhibited with Fidra Fine Art next year. A friend said I was becoming feral. I quite like that description – a wild middle aged woman of the woods.
