Artist, Lecturer / academic, Teacher

Concepts-My current body of work engages with the notion of lost identities, uncertain moments and a sense of place. It relies heavily on the development of the photographic image, and its relationship to drawing/painting. Working from a range of found and archived images, I investigate the point at which, and how, an image becomes more than just a copy.

Influences-Contemporary Painting, Print Making, digital media, photography, film.

Career path-Following the completion of BA (Hons) in Fine Art I worked as a community artist and on a range of commissioned works. I then qualified as teacher of art and design (PGCE). Throughout this time I actively contributed to the early development of art and digital media in schools and exhibited in several notable digital projects. I have since completed an MA in fine art, which placed a strong emphasis on philosophical aesthetics and another MA in Art and Design Histories examining the use of the digital in Fine Art/painting. Following a series of residencies, I have recently worked as visiting lecturer on the BA and MFA courses at Coventry and Brighton Universities respectively and alongside my own work I continue to teach students of all ages and abilities. I am a member of an independent studio group based in Birmingham, a council member for the RBSA and throughout my career I have been awarded a number of arts grants to develop my own practice and curate exhibitions. I continue to exhibit on a regular basis and work has been purchased for private collections and commercial enterprises.
