The Touch – A handshake. A head on the shoulder. A side-hug.
Safety, trust, and a sense of belonging. It’s about basic human need – a touch.

A project carried out during the pandemic, in which I focused on observing my own body, but in time also my interior and psyche. I wonder what has changed since the days of “normality”. I analyze my thoughts, I delve into my reflections about how I actually feel. Here I pay attention to the basic activities of life, which at this point don’t seem to be the key, fundamental ones at all. Everything seems different, strange and unfamiliar.

I am an illustrator based in the Scottish Borders. I have a BDes Honours degree in Animation and I am currently studying an MDes in Comics and Graphic Novels at DJCAD. My work primarily explores themes around Scottish history, tradition and folklore. I thoroughly enjoy sharing aspects of my culture through my illustrations, using them to highlight the nature of certain celebrations, events or stories. I love storytelling, therefore comics are a huge aspect of my work. I enjoy having the ability to narrate a story through text and imagery.
These artworks are from various projects but with the same recurring themes of Scottish history, folklore, and tradition/celebration. Island Wayfarers (WIP title) is my main project this year. It is a children’s/teen comic about two friends who live on a tiny island in the west coast of Scotland. They are keen to go on an adventure so decide to explore a nearby haunted island, imagining the lives of those who lived there before it was abandoned. (comic pages 15, 27, 28 and concept art). The other illustrations explore various Scottish traditions or celebrations (Burns Night, Ceilidh Dancing and Ice Skating on the Loch). The last comic “Faire Chlaidh” explores the Gaelic belief that the last person to be buried in a cemetery is the overall protector of the other spirits until the next person is buried.
