Biography

I’m the Fine Art Photography technician/demonstrator here at the UoCIA. I’ve been working here since 2008, but I first came here as a student in 2000 to study on the BA (Hons) Fine Art course. Although I primarily support the Fine Art students in all aspects of Traditional and Digital Photography, I also support students from all the courses at the Brampton Road campus. I have a wide range of digital and film SLR equipment, along with a small range of digital projectors and AV equipment that students can borrow for free.

As well as studying on the BA Fine Art course, I have also completed an MA in Contemporary Fine Art and a PGC in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education, and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. My current practice focuses on photography, however I also work with printmaking and concept driven installations and book works. The focus of my research is working with nostalgia, landscape, the environment, and traditional and alternative processes and techniques, including working with Cyanotypes and darkroom coffee based processes. I also work with wood to make furniture and toys for my young son.
