I am an illustrator and researcher, with a particular interest in time as a quality of illustration and research methods for illustration research. I have exhibited work and spoken at conferences internationally, and had research published in peer reviewed journals and books.
Lecturer in Illustration
Currently working on a collaborative research project with Luise Vormittag (UAL) examining how illustration intervenes within issues of global importance. The first issue of our interim findings can be found at www.colouring-in.com
I welcome applications from prospective PhD or MA by Research students looking to work in the area of Illustration.
