Biography

Born in UK, living and working in London, I am an artist and Professional Doctorate Researcher in Fine Art - research area is 'Illusory Truth, Manipulation and Atemporal Artefacts in Photographic and Audio/Visual Art.'




School report

1983 seems to have been a turning point in my life although the career notes on my report may have been meant as a metaphor. I studied post-graduate photography at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London and I am an associate lecturer BA (Hons) photography at University of East London.

I have exhibited in the UK and internationally. Awards include the Bar-Tur Award, an Artquest Bursary and short-listing for the Catlin Art Prize. Exhibitions include FreshFaced&WildEyed at The Photographers' Gallery and FutureMap at University of the Arts London.

My work has been published in Artists' Postcards: A Compendium published by Reaction Books, Glass Magazine and Joerg Colberg's Conscientious.

I publish books, postcards and electronic audio work, available here.
