About Me:

I am an artist, designer, researcher and educator based between London and the Norfolk Suffolk border where I live with my dog, Sidney. My work focusses on using a variety of creative techniques to explore place and help change people’s perceptions of the world around them. I studied at Central St. Martins and now teach design, critical practice and design theory at universities around the country.

I am a Senior Lecturer on BA Product and Furniture Design at Chelsea College of Art where I currently run the Third Year.

I’m involved with the folk revival scene where I play English folk music and run the OFFBEAT Folk Film Club.
