About me

I am an Anglo-American artist and educator, whose art practice investigates personal and public histories, creative re-interpretations of archival accounts and activity, both real and imagined.  My arts practice spans video and time-based works, installation, performance, print and artist's publishing. I have experience of curating and working across a number of artist-led projects, in the South West of the UK, I developed and initiated PAC Home in 2011, Plymouth Arts Centres Artist Associates Programme that has since evolved to CAMP https://www.camp-membership.org.

My approach as an educator and academic is to see education as a partnership between ambitious learners, engaged staff and institution, to create a positive, discursive, and inclusive community. I subscribe to a collective and dialogical approach to energise and inform contemporary art production that is vital to developing critical making and thinking. 

In 2019 I completed my AHRC 3D3 practice-based PhD, Meeting the Archive through an Interdisciplinary Artistic Practice, from University of Plymouth. In 2016/17, as part of my research, I was awarded a Kluge Research Fellowship at the Library of Congress, Washington DC, USA, through the AHRC International Placement Programme withing the Moving Picture Library Collections. 

During my time at Arts University Plymouth, I was Senior Lecturer and Subject Lead for Postgraduate Studies from 2019-2023, and the Programme Leader BA Fine Art from 2014-2019. In 2010/12 I was the Research Assistant at Tate St Ives for the Research Action Group Creative Communities. I became a Senior Fellow, HEA in 2022.
