'Over the past decade I visited many remote corners of Scotland. From each of these special places, I brought back small (or large) jars of sand. These captured memories are often my inspiration and mark my deep connection to the seascape. I keep them on display in my studio to bring the beauty of nature into my creative space. Since 2019, I started to use sand from my collection directly in my work. I mix selected sand with different clays to give each piece a unique texture and varied speckled effects. The layered appearance of clay and sand combinations also adds a topography-like colouring to my work - creating imaginary sandscapes.'
