I completed my MFA in Art, Society and Publics at DJCAD, Dundee in September 2015 with a distinction. Before coming to Dundee, I taught in London for many years, and in the Highlands of Scotland. I have also been involved in running the croft on my husband’s family home on the Isle of Skye.  I am currently Artist in Residence at DJCAD.
