"I got this outline of Scotland in memory of my Scottish father who passed away in 2015. I didn't know him very well but I wanted to do something to honour him and his passing.  I got this as a way to mourn the loss of all the conversations and experiences we never had or will have. It sits on my left forearm so I can easily see it when I'm thinking of him."


Books for Tats

Our lives can be defined by relationships, even the ones we didn't have. "The Whole Story" is a collection of uniquely inventive tales set in Scottland that thread a labyrinth of coincidence, chance, and connections missed and made.
