Throughout my career I have been fascinated with the subtle variations in our individual perception of colour, light, form and perspective. I currently use the medium of paint as a way of communicating the knowledge gained from my research and interactions. I position myself as an artistic interpreter in surfacing these nuances in our vision and encourage the viewer the contemplate an alternative and often unconsidered viewpoint.What steps did you take to get where you are now?Originally from Sunderland in the North East, I now live in Wakefield. I studied BSc Textile Design in Huddersfield specialising in Knitted Textiles and went on to work as a Knitwear Designer and then a self employed knitwear business owner. Alongside this I worked as Senior Lecturer in Textiles at The University of Huddersfield where I undertook a Post Graduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCHE) and taught a wide range of art, textiles and craft techniques. More recently, and after having a family, I have taught adult art classes alongside the development of my own artistic practice.What type of creative opportunities are you looking for?Exhibitions, Collaborations, Commissions, Teaching, CharitiesAnswer as many of the following questions as you like to enhance your profile pageMy dream creative collaboration would be...What does Wakefield mean to you?My proudest momentAn unexpected thing about meTick any that apply to youCreative Services Architecture & Planning Creative Education Creative Producing Design Services Graphic Design Marketing & Advertising Other Product Design Set Design Technical Production Creative Content Animation Digital Content Creation Games Design Other Photography Publishing Radio & Podcasts TV & Film Creative Original Apparel & Fashion Arts & Crafts Creative Writing Fine Art Other Sculpture Creative Experiences Dance Libraries Museums and Heritage Music Other Performing Arts Theatre Creative Digital App Development AR & VR Computer Networking Other Software Development Web Design Showcase your workYour video showreel Copy and paste the URL of your Vimeo or YouTube videoUpload up to 5 showcase imagesShowcase image 1 Drop files here or Select files Accepted file types: jpg, jpeg, png, Max. file size: 10 MB.
