ABOUT

I am an artist, photographer and lecturer based in London. My varied work explores common ideas of impermanence, commemoration and death. The veracity of the photograph and its reputation as a truth teller is manipulated and played with throughout my practice. I am interested it the everyday and the micro and macro of ordinary lives and society. I have also made work about time and time passing, markers of a life span - of mine and of others and work around found imagery. I enjoy serendipity, chance and playfulness in my work.

I completed an MA in photography at London College of Communication in December 2010. In October 2011 my work was featured in a site-specific solo exhibition in the Bradford photography festival ‘Ways of Looking’. My work has been published in Source Magazine, BJP online, Axisweb, The Yorkshire Post, Telegraph and Argus and in the festival catalogue, ’Ways of Looking: Evidence’ edited by Anne McNeill.

I have been teaching photography in Further and Higher Education for over 20 years. I am a dedicated year lead and senior Lecturer in Photography at University of Hertfordshire.
