Pum is a painter and collagist based in Glasgow. She studied philosophy at Glasgow University and later gained an MA in Research in Creative Practices from Glasgow School of Art.

Pum uses collage to process her thoughts, feelings and wakeful dreaming. As an individual with autism, collage plays an integral part in her ability to manage her condition.

"I believe the art making process is the product of our human organic intelligence, it is therefore both emotional and imaginative and most essentially, it is communicative. Art presents us with encoded symbols, visual metaphors and forms of perceptual thinking that can evoke responses deep in the psyche. An image or object can simultaneously hold and communicate different meanings on various levels of consciousness offering a flexible and fluid interchange of ideas with the constant potential for movement of meanings and interpretation." - Pum, 2020
