I recently got these fresh of the press. Very happy with the way it turned out. The book launch is on 20th March at the Saltire Society, Edinburgh. Facebook event page here.

This is a cover illustration I was commissioned to do by my good friend and brilliant poet JL Williams. It is for her second collection Locust and Marlin, published by Shearsman Books. You can order direct from the Shearsman Books online store (or from Amazon). Excited yay!


I was recently part of a project that saw the Edinburgh Printmakers work in partnership with the Scottish Poetry Library. Printmakers and poets were randomly paired together to create a piece of work. My partner was the amazing Glasgow-based creative writer Elizabeth Reeder! We decided to use one of Elizabeth’s heartfelt pieces called ‘Attendance’ and I made an artist book. This is what I came up with. It is based on how one mourns death. It was exhibited with the other collaborations at the Written Image show, at the Edinburgh Printmakers.
