NEWS for 2020
I’ve just made a little video of my new studio space. . . fancy a little peak? Then join me on a tour of my new studio.
Sadly, due to Covid-19 my first ever solo show due to run from 20 June to 19 September 2020 has been postponed until 2021.
Over the summer of 2020 I will be creating a piece of street art for ‘Paint the Town’ in Forfar. I’m lucky enough to have been chosen to create a mural at Colin M Smith’s on Castle Street… I’ll post updates once I’ve started working on the artwork!
The summer of 2019 saw my Oor Wullie featured as part of the first ever nationwide public art trail. And this was my first ever piece of public art!!
My design was at Perth Train Station – which was part of the Dundee trail! All proceeds from the auction in September went to support the children’s hospitals across Scotland, with the money from the Dundee Wullie’s going to the ARCHIE Foundation – the official charity of Tayside Children’s Hospital in Dundee. Oor Tatha Rannsachair raised a huge £4.8k and the overall trail raised £1.3million – which is AMAZING!!!!
Oor Tatha was inspired by Dundee and the beauty and changing mood of the River Tay. He portrays times spent exploring by the river and journeys crossing over it – a city framed by an expanse of green hills and silvery blue water. There are references to the marks in the stonework along the river wall, patterns created by tides distributing pebbles across the shorelines of Tay Country, and the bold geometrics of the bridges. Finally, those breath-taking moments when shafts of sunlight pour in through heavy rain clouds and the glorious sunrises and sunsets that light up the river.
