Senior Technician

I began working at Falmouth university in 2005 as a part-time 3D associate lecturer on the Art Foundation and as a temporary woodwork technician in the Fine Art workshop, which eventually turned into a full-time senior technical position in metal work! For the last three years I've been working in this role part-time and hold a part-time senior position at Fabrication Facility, a company based in London and Falmouth that specialises in the execution of creative metalworking projects specifically within the arts.

I graduated from a Fine Art degree at Falmouth in 1999 and continued my practice as a kinetic sculptor exhibiting internationally, especially since the 1999 BT New Contemporaries exhibition for which I was selected for, this functioned as a major stepping stone for my career in the arts.

I completed a PGCE in post compulsory education at Cornwall College in 2005 specialising in teaching Fine Art and have been working within the School of Art ever since.
