His shows covered Scotland, Helsinki, London and Poland, Contemporary Art Society, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Scottish Arts Council and Dundee Art Gallery.

She recently designed three Beautiful/Decay Apparel shirts, “When the Lights go Out,” “Super Nova,” and “Elevation.” Read the full interview below!
