Stockingfield Bridge

Exciting news! I am delighted to be working with Scottish Canals and seven other artists/groups to produce an artwork for the new Stockingfield Bridge project in Glasgow.

While studying at Glasgow School of Art, I lived on a houseboat at Applecross Basin, and have many fond memories of the canal and surroundings. It’s lovely to come back to this location to produce an artwork that is to be tied deeply to the place and its people.

With input from local community groups and others, I will be designing a ‘river of names’ to be installed on the towpath next to the canal. The names will be etched into granite slabs, using a variety of typefaces, lettering and alphabets.

If you have a connection with the local area and would like to suggest a name to be included in the ‘river’, please get in touch at the website below.

The artwork will be installed in Spring 2022.

Watch this space!
