I designed and delivered a 6 week creative engagement programme with interior designer Sooz Gordon to work on team building, allowing participants to be expressive and try new techniques and break a few perceptions. Over the weeks we took art out of the classroom and workshops took place outside. We creating transient art in the school grounds - from ground graffiti, yarn bombing, hula hoop structures and mild vandals. Mild Vandals was inspired by a current international graffiti movement. Each session was fast paced due to the limited 50 minute lesson time. Continue reading →

Here's my new images for next years 2014 Autumn/Winter Hallyburton Collection. All inspired by where I live on a country estate in the heart of Perthshire, Scotland. I'm surrounded by an abundance of inspiration on my doorstep!
I'm continually inspired by the changing seasons and fascinated at the harmonisation of the flora and fauna blending together. You often find me exploring knee deep amongst the grasses and dotted wild flowers, wandering through the woods of dappled trees and patchwork fields - I hope my designs capture the essence my surroundings.
This new Autumn/Winter 2014 Hallyburton Collection uses a palette of greens and a hint of warm chestnut. Some of my artworks include my fascination of pheasants as I follow their footprints around the estate, textured of stacked logs and expressive dotty marks of nature’s elements.
I create sophisticated patterned artworks for your products using my signature style of a lovely organic movement using repetitive marks and textures in delicious colours.
Patterned artworks collections can be licensed or I can be commissioned to create something bespoke for your products.

Final Flyer for the upcoming Pecha Kucha in Dundee! Thanks to Lyall for the graphics! A sample below of an earlier edition.I've designed the latest flyer for the Pecha Kucha Vol 7. In my illustration I really wanted to capture the creativity going on in Dundee using my signature style. Using pattern to represent the different creatives, cultural organisations and events happening in Dundee that blend and merge together to create such a rich tapestry of the city, using the iconic silhouette of The Law as a backdrop. This event also links into the revealing of which city is to be crowned City of Culture 2017.
I'm a huge fan of Pecha Kucha nights organised by Creative Dundee, they are so inspiring! They've always have a great mix of creatives on the line up from people I know to things that I didn't realise was happening in Dundee and surrounding areas. it's a great concept, 20 slides and 20 seconds - it's gives a fast snapshot! I did one back in May 2012, a bit scary standing up in front of 200 people! You can see my one here.
Pecha Kucha Volume 7 will take place on Thursday 21st November at the Bonar Hall in Dundee from 7pm - 10pm. This is a ticketed event and tickets are available from Eventbright please click here.
If you like my artwork is available for licence or I can create something bespoke for you.
