Reader in Fine Art

As an artist with a specific interest in space, colour and form, I have developed a practice which spans from drawing and painting to full size wallpaintings and site specific installations.

I am very much interested in how colour interferes with our perception of space and have realised wall paintings in places of diverse characters from Museums to Underground Stations and Hospitals. Site specific installations include projects for Piccadilly Underground Station, London, Haymarket Metro Station, Newcastle, The Ministry of Justice, London, Pallant House, Chichester and most recently Leeds Art Gallery.

I have exhibited nationally and internationally with solo exhibitions at Chisenhale, London, The Collection Lincoln, Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven and Kunstverein / Künstlerhaus Hanover.

Most recent groupshows include Seurat to Riley: The Art of Perception, Compton Verney, Enter Stage Left, The Glucksman Gallery, Cork, Ireland and Drama Queen, Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen, Germany.

Teaching and supervision

I teach on both the BA (Hons) Fine Art and the MA Fine Art programmes.


My current and ongoing research includes drawing, painting / wall painting and projects in the public realm. In particular, the language and inventions of Modernism and it's impact on current aesthetics fascinates me with it's crossover of disciplines like Art and Architecture, Drama, Textiles and Design.
