hello I’m Tilly!

I’m originally from near Coventry, but moved to the Isle of Skye as a child. When I was 18 I moved to Glasgow to live and work and ended up studying at Glasgow School of Art, I’m now 25, a 2021 graduate, living and working in Glasgow!

I’m interested in play within the blur of physical and digital spaces. I’m excited by mystical mundanity, the gaps around us (metaphorical and physical) being a seedbed for fantasy of self, objects and our surroundings. Working with collage as a way to try and make physical objects/ 3D/ animation have fun and play! I’m a shark enthusiast interested in the cultural horror that surrounds these animals that keep to themselves. I’m curious about water, how folklore begins, and the potential of mythologies being born from daily routine.
