My practice explores our experience of the spaces in between, those literal and metaphorical places that are often neglected. My work embraces site-specific installation, paper based work and collaboration with the public. I am especially interested making these spaces visible for investigation by using drawing and photography to explore social encounters, visualise knowledge and play with cultural idiosyncrasies. I have held artist residencies in the UK and Europe and my research on drawing has been published internationally. I am a regional associate for the Campaign for Drawing and have regularly been involved in the annual Big Draw Festival since it’s inception in 2000.
I have taught at Arts Space Portsmouth, the University of Kingston and the University of Brighton where I was a Research Fellow in Creativity. In 2012 I was on the jury of the International Drawing Triennial in Tallinn, Estonia and I currently have a solo exhibition at the Avenue Gallery, University of Northampton. I studied at Sheffield Hallam University and the University of the Arts, London. I hold a BA (Hons) Fine Art, an MA in Drawing and a practice-led PhD. Teaching for the OCA, on the BA Creative Arts and the MA Fine Art, gives me the chance to help students expand their horizons and realise their potential. I enjoy teaching dedicated students from a wide range of backgrounds, and I am always discovering something new from their different perspectives on art and art making.
