Featured Work

A print, 'Cindy', from my cyanotype series 'Yield' was displayed in spring 2018 at the Lamb Gallery, Tower Building, University of Dundee in their exhibition 'Botanical Conversations: the Science and Beauty of Plants'. I began this series whilst on a residency at Hospitalfield House in Arbroath. 

The exhibition showcased a wide range of botanical material – from intriguing herbarium specimens and detailed diagrams of plant dissections to plant themed artworks.
