I am delighted to have been selected as the Winner of the Scottish Landscape Sculpture Award and a £2,000 commission to create the first prize trophy sculpture for the 2025 Scottish Landscape Awards. The winning work, Rising From The Cracks, is new work which is inspired by the tiny mosses and lichens that grow in abundance all around us, but largely go unnoticed. It was particularly exciting as this is the inaugural Scottish Sculpture Awards exhibition and I am very proud to be included in such a wonderful and diverse exhibition which covers two floors of the City Art Centre in Edinburgh.

The Scottish Landscape Awards is a biennial event open to anyone over 16 years born, living or studying in Scotland, and for works in any media. The judges were Barbara Rae, David Mach, Ade Adesina, Marian Leven and Jane & Louise Wilson and there were over 2,8000 entries of which 133 were selected. The awards as conceived by the Scottish Arts Trust encourage “an environment where landscape is a springboard for investigation, experimentation and discourse”.
