Born in the UK, I studied Fine Art at Leeds University and Bennington College, USA, before gaining a PhD in the History and Theory of Art from the University of Kent at Canterbury.

I have taught and directed academic and administrative departments in Higher Education for 25 years, serving in senior leadership roles. Across my career I have managed, and led academic, and administrative departments in secondary, tertiary and higher education. As an educator, researcher, and leader, I have overseen multiple large-scale operational, academic and research projects, most recently in my roles as Assistant Vice-Chancellor and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Global Engagement) at the University for the Creative Arts, where I am also Professor of Fine Art Education.

I have a long experience of developing and curating commissioned work for the public realm. My creative practice explores our relationship to landscape and geography through the invention of historic technologies. My works are site responsive and explore the invisible qualities that inform the way in which we experience, or might re-experience, specific places. My most recent sculptural works explore the landscapes of Kent and the South East of England, where I live.
