Academic work

Current: Associate lecturer Chelsea College of Art, Ba Fine Art.

Statement:I have taught regularly on Ba and Ma courses for the last 15 years and see my teaching practice developing in tandem with my own work of which there is much cross over in style and content; setting up projects which become a catalyst or frame for students to develop within.

In the last year I have run workshops at The Slade, delivered electives on Theory & Context at Chelsea College of Art (since 2009), delivered a spatial practice strand on the M.Arch at AUB.(Since 2014)


My responsibilities have ranged from delivering lectures, workshops, tutorials and seminars to marking students work, developing timetables and teaching structure, attending parity and course meetings. Through to setting up off site projects, negotiating with councils and private companies in order to facilitate 'real life' student projects.


As well as participating in the daily running of courses, working long term with students with a focus on site specificity and place, paying attention to developing skills around processing ideas, working collaboratively, thinking about professional practice, presentation of work for exhibition in gallery and non- gallery situations and documentation of projects and developing independent research.


The majority of my teaching experience has been on Fine Art BA and MA courses however in recent years I have become increasingly involved with the M.Arch at AUB and have found the challenge of teaching Architecture students new and re-vitalising of my teaching practice both in terms of developing work with M.Arch students and feeding into my work on Fine Art Courses with a greater sense of architectural and spatial practices.


I have worked at regularly at Cardiff Met/ UAL/ Plymouth/ Exeter/ and given guest lectures at Dartington/ UWE/ UAL/ MMU/ etc etc...
