Research Interests

Drawing; The domestic crafts; Patterns and patterning

Vision Statement

As an artist educator the impetus for my research comes from observations of my own practice and that of others in the field. My art practice is autobiographical and uses narratives drawn from life experiences. The language and vocabulary of my art production is informed by women’s domestic crafts, the decorative arts and folk art. I use drawing, sewing and making to give voice and form to states of being that are internal, psychological and intangible. My pedagogic research is driven by a desire to make explicit how we do what we do in higher education in the art and design disciplines, both in terms of curricula and also with regard to the leadership and management of the complexities of learning through making which characterise our provision.
