I was selected to take part in a project initiated by the Scottish Touring Exhibitions Consortium. All nine artists involved evidence a strong interest or link to scientific origin/inspiration in their work and currently undertaking collaborations in scientific research or have plans to do so in the near future.

“My work focuses on natural forms from particular areas of ground and the activities present and past which leave trace marks. Regeneration interests me as does the unseen element in the landscape. Science is also a valuable part of the process. I look at pollen grains of seeds through a scanning electron microscope to reveal structural elements.

Textured and stained canvasses scraped at and poured onto give a feeling of layers of time, infinite variation, and movement, as well as structure and form revealing another dimension to the natural world – that of the unexpected and unpredictable.”
