Artist, Teacher

My work has constantly dealt with issues relating to the education system at large. My enquiries question the role of state education with regards to my teaching observations of high pupil resistance and low pupil well being. My focus has concerned resistant and deviant behaviours in over 150 different schools in the London area were I have worked. Although most of my investigations have involved liasions with senior teaching staff, more recent visual evidencing is now involving direct work with young people themselves.
