About me

I am Associate Director of Postgraduate taught studies in the School of Arts. I am also Senior Lecturer in Art and Design Education, and as such also teach across the School of Education and Childhood.

After teaching Art and Design at the Secondary phase across Cambridge, London, and latterly Bristol I first joined UWE to engage with teacher education and art educational research. I continue to be an active member of the National Society of Education in Art and Design, as well as a Trustee for the Roche Court Educational Trust, a Fellow of the Chartered College of Teaching, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts. I am co-editor of the International Journal for Art and Design Education.

Area of expertise

My teaching draws on my experiences and research in the classroom, including issues of pedagogy, curricula, assessment, and inclusion, while also looking towards equity in arts education, issues surrounding postmodern art education, and critical arts education.

Recent research has involved inspecting art education practices in relation to modernist tradition, documenting the self-image of female art and design teachers, and cliche and stereotype in arts curricula. My doctoral research at the University of Glasgow focuses on the sustainability of prospective art educators' idealism when faced with technocratic rationale in the classroom.
