About Me

Born in 1991 and raised in Aberdeen, Scotland. I am currently a student of Grays School of Art about to graduate with a BA(Hons) in Fine art Painting.

Artist Statement:

Natural disaster makes an example of mankind. Regularly washing the land clean of mankind’s developments, restoring a sort of balance by reminding us we are part of the land, not in control of it.

The focus of my work stems from and is fuelled by my own firsthand experience of the forest fires in America during the summer of 2013. I have seen the destruction natural disaster can cause. Wildfire consumed vast areas of forest, destroying homes and businesses and engulfing the whole area in a choking acrid smoke, bringing major cities to a standstill.

The car has developed into a symbollic representation of technical achievement and success in the modern world. However, it is often found to be the first visual example of our fragility when placed within a natural disaster. I use the car symbolically to represent the delicacy and vulnerability of mankind.

By exploring themes of destruction, islolation, loss and redevelopment, I aim to document the fragility of mankind through the creation and destruction of a model environment.
