Postgraduate supervision is a keen interest, areas covered are those in Textiles, Fashion, Fashion Communication, Drawing, encompassing embodied materiality, my work in handmade paper and practice-based, installation art. More recently, substantial research as co-investigator with an AHRC project into sustainabile materials, looking at waste in the fashion, textiles, accessories and leather industries.
My work has taken me into materials, craft, things that are handmade, using stitch, textiles and textile art. Over the years I have worked in photography, fashion photography, fashion illustration, and in film, post production using digital effects, sfx, vfx, together with character animation in feature films. I am design trained, [fashion, textiles, theatre], however I have an interest in psychology and philosophy through my study of grief, trauma, and the craft of handmade papermaking.
