I studied art at Manchester Metropolitan University in the 90s, and later Goldsmiths College, where I began researching the politics and aesthetics of liberal arts education and institutions. My interest in education was generated during a PGCE in Art and Design at the IoE in 2002, after which I worked as a teacher and as an artist in further education colleges across London (teaching GCSE, A Level, BTECs and leading a part time Foundation Course in Art & Design). In 2004 I began lecturing at the University of Westminster on BA Mixed Media Fine Art, leading several modules in Critical and Contextual Studies. I have also worked extensively as an artist educator in museums and galleries including Tate Modern, The Serpentine Gallery, The British Museum, The Hayward Gallery and Camden Art Centre, devising and leading talks, workshops and longer term projects. My work in museums and galleries often approached the institution as a site for critical interrogation, intervention and play. 

Research Groups
Research Summary

My current research examines legacies of fine art education formed under the welfare state within the contemporary 'neoliberal' university, and the ways in which historical models of the artist haunt, are mobilised and persist through pedagogy, marketing and curatorial practice.

Other research interests include:

Myths, fantasies and the historiography of the UK art school

Critical practice in art and education

The social production of art and artists

Materiality in the ed-tech classroom

Narrative, fiction and humour

Post qualitative and practice-led research methods
