I am a Technical Instructor in Print, based at the Print-Hub at Britannia Mill Studio 3, working across the School of Arts, conducting timetabled instruction to groups of students and individual one to one support. I work with academic staff to deliver printmaking specific to subject specialisms and modules. I also assist with the management and organisation of technical resources and print facilities, including the management and deployment of the technical support staff in print and therapeutic arts. I supervise and manage the day-to-day activities in the print studio at Britannia Mill Studio 3, including organising the maintenance of equipment and ensuring compliance with all relevant health and safety regulations and policies.

Professional interests

I am interested in all aspects of printmaking, especially development of new technologies to create hybrid processes that combine the traditional mechanical print processes with the latest technologies and materials.

I also maintain my own professional output as an artist, photographer and designer.
