Obtained an MFA (1998) and PhD (2006) from the University of Ulster and was a Fellow at the British school in Rome (2005-2006). I have teaching experience in a number of academic departments in Ireland and the UK. Taught at University Campus Suffolk 2011 and the University of Ulster 2003-2005 and had experience of teaching studio practice and theory. I have been Course Leader of Fine Art at BHSAD since 2012.
Research / professional practice interests:
My practice led research has been concerned with the relationship between painting/drawing and lens-based representations. Particularly the indexical relationship between an image and the depicted subject in documentary and gestural drawing. This research has involved an engagement with drawing, video and photography.
