The following work is a response to my shoreline on the Isle of Arran created over several years. It was part of the Seasilks installation at Taigh Chearsabhagh, Lochmaddy, North Uist in Feb/Mar 2009. and was part of the Shorelines Research Project, shown at the University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia, 2010 and the Maclaurin Art Galleries, Ayr, 2011 This work shows how the elements impact on our lives while remaining relatively unseen and unnoticed.
Out of this has emerged my current practice-based doctoral research at the University of the West of Scotland, Ayr Campus, where I am looking at relinquishing through transition and how this impacts of the creative process.
