I joined Falmouth University in 1991, I have taught across a number of courses including Art and Design Foundation, Fine Art, Broadcasting, Drawing, Architecture and Illustration.
This eclectic career has been underpinned by a firm belief in the interconnected nature of art and design practice. My teaching of both studio practice and critical studies also relates to my interest in bridging between disciplines and areas of activity.

Research interests and expertise
Research interests include the relationship between architecture and illustration, I would also consider the interconnected nature of the arts as a key theme and the importance of histories and theories as a presence in studio practice.

- The nature of drawing
- The social context of illustration
