Place of Pillars

I have recently completed the new commission Place of Pillars for ATLAS Arts, presented as a live reading at Carmina Gadelica, Portree, and The Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh. The work is presented as a live reading, as an ATLAS printed publication (available in limited numbers from ATLAS - contact them for more information), and as an audio work released through the Edinburgh Arts Festival and broadcast on Cullin FM (102.7 and 106.2).



I have several UK projects upcoming in 2017 - 2018. Details to follow.

A Scarf For Glasgow Women's Library


Digital print on silk chiffon, 135cm x 30cm, variable edition of 20.

Commissioned by Glasgow Women's Library as part of 21 Revolutions: Two Decades of Changing Minds.

To mark Glasgow Women’s Library’s 21st anniversary, the Library commissioned 21 women artists to create new work inspired by items and artefacts GWL's collections. One of each limited edition is now housed in the GWL Archive Collection, while the rest are being sold to raise money for the Library. A Scarf for Glasgow Women's Library is a variable edition of 20, available in 5 different colours (future blue, hope green, memory purple, welcome salmon and flown yellow) and 4 different gestures (hands cupped, palms wide, strong fists and two fingers): each work is unique.

This scarf is available for £200, plus postage (£20 UK/£40 International). Scarves are still available! Click here to buy.
