It was a privilege to work with Master Printer Scott Campbell at Glasgow Print Studio and creating these silkscreen prints as a result of the GPS Publication Prize that I was awarded at the RSA NC exhibition last year. I loved every part of the process! Thank you Glasgow Print Studio. Special thanks to Claire Forsyth for organizing every aspect of the studio visits and for welcoming me at GPS. I met here many amazing artists working regularly at GPS. Hope to be back someday!

Artist In Residence
This week I started a six-months artist residency at the Glenesk Folk Museum.
The Glenesk Folk Museum is home to a collection of more than 30 thousands artifacts - some of them still in the process of being catalogued, - representing Scottish rural life of the past. The museum also has a much admired permanent exhibition of objects displayed in several reconstructed interiors.
I am looking forward to getting to know more about this rich collection and making artworks inspired by my experience.
The Artist Residency was made possible by Creative Scotland Open Fund.

The SSA 130 YEARS | ANNUAL EXHIBITION is open from 17 December 2022 until 10th January 2023 at the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh.
To celebrate the 130th anniversary of the Society of Scottish Artists, a selection of works representing the history of the SSA are showcased alongside of the annual exhibition, including Auguste Rodin's sculpture of Victor Hugo, exhibited at the first SSA exhibition in 1892; a lithograph by Edward Munch, whose works were shown for first time in the UK in 1931 by the SSA; and a selection of prints by Eduardo Paolozzi from 1969.
As part of the 130th celebrations, the SSA commissioned artists to make new work in response to nine selected historical works. My work HUMBER-UNFOLDING-TAKAHE is a response to Bet Low’s (1924-2007) MERGE AND EMERGE, 1961, oil on canvas painting. My plan was to broadly follow Bet Low’s colour scheme and structure yet show an exciting interpretation of it in a different medium and technique.
I am grateful to the SSA for this opportunity and humbled to see my work in such prestigious company.
