Personal profile

Summary

Profile

I am Academic Lead: Student Experience in the School of Art, Design and Performance and teach on both the Illustration BA(Hons) and MA Illustration courses. I graduated from Wolverhampton Polytechnic in BA (Hons) Printmaking and have an MA in Printmaking from Wimbledon School of Art.

Specialising in: artists’ books, print (etching, screen, relief, embossing) illustration and self-publication.

Research Interests

My research interests focus on exploring ‘evidence’ from official documentation and records, particularly those that use coded information. Specifically, the mark making employed in record keeping, official files and documentation - not traditionally accessible for general viewing. As a printmaker I am researching the visualising and interpreting of this data along with possible misrepresentation and its inherent value. With the increasing drive to digitising all of our personal data I am seeking to evidence the tactile quality of paper records that is rapidly disappearing.

I am curator of the Ministry of Books – specialist artists books collection, housed in the Illustration studios.
