I share the role of Programme Director for Historical and Contextual Studies and lecture on both the Contextual Studies programme and General Illustration practice.

I have over twenty five years experience in the illustration industry: An established career as a freelance illustrator followed by setting up and running my own award-winning, design-led publishing company, producing die-cut and three dimensional paper products. I lectured for seven years after graduating, initially full-time, then on a part-time basis as my illustration career became more demanding. I returned to lecturing in 2007 and now license my artwork.

I teach first and second year Illustration Contextual Studies modules: M1X8506 and M2X7449. I also supervise dissertation students: M3X7469. In addition to this I teach practice on the General Illustration programme: M1X7493 – Visual Communication and Illustration for Magazines and Newspapers and M1X7492 – Media and Techniques.

At present I am studying for my Masters. Current research interests are in authorial illustration.

My main area of illustration practice is illustration for advertising and design. However, as a small house publisher for many years (greeting cards and gift stationery) I have developed in-depth knowledge of the greetings and gift industry. This trend-led area of design is a great source of commissions for illustrators. At present my practice leans towards the entrepreneurial and authorial approach.

I set up and ran my own award-winning, design-led publishing company for almost twenty years: Producing die-cut and three dimensional paper products, exhibiting at major trade fairs and exporting to over thirty countries.
