Summary:I trained at the Slade School of Fine Art. In the latter stage finding a niche making experimental films and animations. I then started working for the artist Tacita Dean assisting in the post-production of her films. Through that time I volunteered in a homeless shelter, which then led into workshops with young offenders. Repositioning outside London, I returned to Suffolk to rediscover values of authentic localism and community.
I now teach Art & Design in a Suffolk prison. A challenging area. Working with people at risk of marginalisation by society brought about through complex problems and tangled legacies. Complied by the stigma attached to holding a criminal record, is the impact this then brings upon self perception of identity and perception of others. Through my work I witness an emergence in sensitivity, pride and motivation towards change.
We balance the requirements of professional teaching standards delivering National QCF accreditation with the roles of responsibility underlying any security/protection service. I encourage cross-platform multi media approaches, 2d and 3d with learning reference to artists and exploration into their interests. Though I teach graphic design interlacing between the digital mediums and the practical arts. .
Art provides a space for contemplation, reflection, distraction and fresh imagination through which it is possible to transcend the circumstances which have brought about their problems and incrementally bring about small changes to life and wider well-being. I consider myself fortunate in receiving daily reminders through others of the potential for restorative realisation through creative activity.
