MA Fine Art Programme Leader

Contemporary Artist and MA Fine Art Programme Leader recent screenings performances and exhibitions include: Bagist Sailboat Performance
Fabricated, Nine paintings with no more nails and 3DGlitch.

My practice embraces a wide variety of media. I run a studio in Whitley Bay with on going drawing, painting, digital sculpture, and photographic projects.

I have worked with architects on regeneration projects and collaborated on sound and performance works as one half of H+M. I am a member of the space/socialspace research group and Ars Mathematica Paris.

Teaching and supervision

I am Programme Leader for MA Fine Art and alongside other staff, teach into both studio and Theory Modules including:
  • ARTM27 Contemporary Fine Art Studio Practice: ‘Test It’
  • ARTM36  Contemporary Fine Art Professional Practice: ‘Digital Document'
  • ARTM35 Contemporary Fine Art Studio Practice: ‘Do It’
  • ARTM39  Contemporary Fine Art Research Project: Reflect
  • ARTM37 Contemporary Fine Art Professional Practice: Exhibition 

    As Senior Lecturer for BA (Hons) Fine Art, I am Stage 3 Leader overseeing new modules ART360 Practice Publication Pitch and the new stage 2 Module ART280 Fine Art and Society. All stages make use of the Shaun Project Space to present their work. I also teach fine art and digital skills into Foundation Extended and I am also a PhD 2nd Supervisor for Helen Pailling.

My research sits in the territory defined as ‘digital’. My output has origins in the physical processes of drawing, painting and printmaking. My preference is to draw with a mobile phone or construct ‘sculpture and objects’ through the use of appropriate software. I have also taken imagery from digital sources into the physical world, through exhibitions and commissioned work.
