About

As an undergraduate I studied Fine Art (at Bath Academy of Art), before going on to an MA and then a PhD in Cultural Studies (at the University of Birmingham). For many years I lectured on Art, Design and Media courses, specialising in Visual Culture. My academic career has included the management of the Department of Art & Design and subsequently the Department of Creative Industries, at the University of the West of England Bristol. In 2012 I was elected to the CHEAD executive, and appointed as Associate Dean for Learning & Teaching in the Faculty of Art, Design, and Architecture at Kingston University in 2013. I achieved my Principal Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy in 2017.
