Her collage work inspired by architecture was selected for the “Lines of Thought” Exhibition at The Lighthouse, marking the bicentenary of the birth of Glasgow architect Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson. She was invited to exhibit two collages in the ‘Takes On Thomson 2020’ online exhibition organised by The Alexander Thomson Society.
Another thread of her collage work is currently being exhibited in the Seagull Gallery. These artworks are inspired by the patterns found on fragments of sea pottery from the west and east coast beaches of Scotland. The art work is painted with acrylic pens and paints on canvas and included the found pottery which is the centrepiece of each painting.
