I was born and raised on 2 magnificent Scottish islands. My early years, on the Island of Harris and later, The Shetland Islands.

I now realise that these beginnings had a profound influence on how I conceived the world.

Nature in all its manifestations inevitably influenced my young mind. This, coupled with a love of art led me to pursue the creative path. I have passion for art combined with an interest in the sciences. The marriage of these disciplines, in my studies, saw me graduate from The University of Edinburgh with a First class Honours degree in Product Design.

After graduation I completed an internship with Tao Design, a leading design company in China. This was followed by a period witha software company in Edinburgh.

I currently work in freelance design, photography and mixed media art.
