I have always been interested in what is happening inside the body as well as how it looks on the outside, and since 2013 I have been consulting different scientists from St Andrews University, who have kindly helped me in developing my practice in this area.
I am currently involved in conversations with Dr Sam Pitt’s lab, exploring the physical, emotional, spiritual and cultural associations with how we see and experience the heart.
In 2016/17 I was involved in the Chrysalis project, which explored how women are working in science today, and any challenges or barriers they may be facing. For me, the project culminated in a body of work based on my reflections at the Byre Theatre in St Andrews. Some of this work was then included in the Wellcome Image Library and another piece won a Wellcome Image Award.
