Biography

As Programme Leader of the Fine Art Programme, I teach across all years and am responsible, with the help of all my colleagues, for the smooth running of Fine Art. I am also a student, currently studying for a PhD, so I understand the daily triumphs and trials of student life. 

As an artist my practice is interdisciplinary, but I mostly make films. Evolving from my interest in feminist film practice and science fiction, my films make use of appropriation and narrative to warp the established meanings of pop cultural texts. Have a look at my work here.

Recent research teritory includes Philip K. Dick's biography, the writing of Chris Kraus and Naomi Mitchison and the notion of the screen as a semi-permiable membrane.
