Professional Experience

Artist
I have been working as an independent professional artist since my graduation. I have gained experience in exhibiting with a variety of galleries within Scotland and have also shown work in many Art Fairs around Britain and the U.S.A. I am a figurative painter, using oil paint in a unique, loose and free-flowing way to produce paintings based on self-portraiture, which represent the grace and allure of the female form. By gaining insight into how an exhibition is organised I have been able to initiate various independently run exhibitions.
