I found myself entering the world of work far earlier and more suddenly than intended (though not unexpectedly), and as a result was thrust into employment in automotive engineering. Several years of metal bashing, grease, oil and welding later, I decided to re-enter the world of education. I initially did this through part time evening study while continuing to work in automotive engineering. I then made the decision to return full time to education completing a bachelor’s degree in 3D design (ceramics) at Loughborough College of Art & Design.

Since graduating I have worked at several institutions, joining Falmouth University in 1999 as 3D foundation technician. Today as senior technician, within the Falmouth School of Art, I still support students studying the foundation diploma, as well as students (undergraduate and postgraduate) from other courses within the Falmouth School of Art and the wider University. I support the use of a wide variety of materials and instruct on an extensive range of technical processes, including woods, metals (including jewellery), plaster, glass, casting, clay and ceramics.
