I am currently Acting Head of School
Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1990, I have worked part-time in higher education in a variety of roles, whilst continuing my practice as artist and curator, and engaging in pedagogic research through a number of funded projects. A Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2004, I was awarded SFHEA in 2017.
My personal Fine Art practice addresses the experience of excess in colour, repetition, and ornament, with recent artworks using an expanded definition of printmaking, drawn and painted figure and line, and appropriated domestic objects and patterns. I was awarded a DFA in 2019.
