I love to think across disciplines and am currently exploring the intersection of philosophy, science and religion since completing my postgraduate studies at the University of Edinburgh.
At the moment I am in the process of developing a new project based around the Fife Pilgrim Way.
I have always been interested in what it is to be a human as well as ideas around body and soul; and since 2013 I have been engaging with different scientists from St Andrews University, who have kindly helped me in developing my practice in this area.
Molecular Self (2014-2016), explored the nature/nurture debate with children and families & looked at the role of inheritance from all sides. https://news.st-andrews.ac.uk/archive/the-art-of-dna/
Chrysalis, (2017 – 2018) engaged with female scientists to explore the barriers to being a woman in science today. The resulting paintings won a Wellcome Image award and one was featured on the front page of The Lancet in 2019. https://wellcomecollection.org/works/wye6j64v
Hearts and Minds (2019-2020) explored the link between the brain and the heart and the many fascinating creative and scientific ways in which the heart takes centre stage in our cultural references.
