Colour, design and a bit of paint can completely transform the way space is used. The work was originally commissioned to help stop anti-social behaviour, graffiti and drug use problems in the area. Now, the people of Southside of Edinburgh walk happily through the alleyway, as opposed to avoiding it. I worked with local people who stopped by, picked up a brush and helped to create the mural.

Southside Association gave me a brief to reflect the local area. This area has fantastic and colourful businesses, a haven of fabric shops, vintage clothing and food from all around the world. I am so proud of the way the mural changed the space completely and is now a place that draws people to it.
