Drawing underpins everything I do.

Through drawing, I find an intimate engagement with the world,

a way to be porous.

It's my tool of exploration, a means to look closely

and relate to the life around me

I'm an artist based in Scotland, living a quiet physical practice:

drawing, listening, walking the ground.

I notice how differently we see things according to where we are situated
