Painter

My passion for urban Art was sparked during my first trip to Amsterdam in 2012. In the neighbourhood of Spuistraat, home to a community of creative types, she took countless pictures of decaying buildings and graffiti, traveling there almost every year to renew her repertoire. What attracted her was the impromptu and transient nature of street Art as well as its multiculturalism, as many Artists would come from outside the country to make murals. My series of spraycan tribal mask paintings was inspired by a workshop I led in my home town of Aberdeen, during which I painted on old spray cans. The suite is an exotic and luxuriant array of tribal masks incorporating elements from African, Asian, and South American traditions. The masks are depicted on spray cans and surrounded by lush patterns of plants and animals. The series has a distinct metropolitan feel and celebrates diversity through a message of unity: we are one species and one tribe. Graduating in 1999 from Gray’s School Of Art/ Robert Gordon University’s in Aberdeen, Scotland with a BA (Hons) in Painting, going on to receive a Postgraduate Diploma/Masters in Art & Design in 2000. I have exhibited widely in the UK as well as all over Europe and North America. I am also the owner of Tribe All, which designs t-shirt collections of tribal masks from all over the world. As a designer, I have participated in the Aberdeen and Milan Fashion Weeks. My artwork has appeared in publications such as Elle Decor, Red Magazine, and House & Garden.

My work draws inspiration from the urban environments and street Art of European cities. My spray can painting series incorporates the vibrant palette and compositional elements of graffiti with the traditional aesthetic of tribal masks. With this, I wish to celebrate the wonderful diversity there is in this world, while promoting a sense of togetherness. Despite our many differences, we are all one beautiful tribe.
