I am a mother and grandmother fulfilling the dream of my youth, a lifelong yearning to create a life for myself as an artist; as a woman in Scotland I did not always find this easy. Now the difficulties and challenges I face as a student, a woman, an artist are of my free will choice, and I meet them on my own terms.
My family are proud of me and they think I’m a little bit crazy, and that’s OK, more than OK!
I am interested in human behavior. My work is usually about my life and experience, what it means to be a woman, an elder, a student, an artist, in a patriarchal society; my work is often nostalgic, reflective, concerned with personal and collective narrative and deeper meanings.
I love to travel and have travelled in six continents and been to many European cities but this is my first visit to Vienna. I love it!
