'I am a Glasgow based visual artist and I enjoy working in various media, from sculpture to mosaic to origami to animation. I love group work and collaboration and I'm obsessed with symbolism and the visual languages which are all around us in plain sight but need a little decoding for the uninitiated.'

'I'm currently working with a group from Platforum, a mental Health Organization based in Govan whose members are very inspiring in their level of peer support for one another. We are exploring the messages of support people exchange to counter feelings of being isolated and overwhelmed, and to assert the visibility and presence of a marginalised group.

We will project simple images with deliberately course brush marks and enlarge these for painting onto our flags, as we want the obvious 'imperfect' work of a human hand to be evident in our finished flags.'
