Biography

Born in the UK, I studied Fine Art at Leeds University and Bennington College, USA, before gaining a PhD in the History and Theory of Art from the University of Kent at Canterbury.

I have a broad experience of developing and curating commissioned work for the public realm. My works are site responsive and explore the geometric, historic and visual qualities that inform the way in which we experience or might re-experience specific places. I have recently begun exploring the geometric and historic contexts that determine a sense of the landscapes of Kent and the South East of England, where I currently live.

Having taught for over 20 years, I am currently Director of Research for the University for the Creative Arts and Associate Head of School for the School of Fine Art and Photography. I am also a Reader in Fine Art and have been the Course Leader for the MA Fine Art and MA Curatorial Practice in Canterbury for the last six years.
