Programme Leader: BA(Hons)/FdA Illustration & Concept Art
I have over 24 years’ experience in HE education. I have an MA in Design (Illustration) from the University of Lincoln. During my teaching career, I have held a number of posts including Lecturer, Course Leader, Deputy Head of Section and Programme Leader.
I studied my honours degree, specialising in Illustration at Kingston Upon-Thames University. Following this I worked within the design and advertising industry for the next five years, prior to embarking on a career in teaching, whilst also continuing my own professional development and retaining close links with industry. I obtained my PGCE from the University of Huddersfield. I am currently an external examiner for Carmarthen School of Art, was an external advisor on a BA(Hons) validation panel for Leeds University and acted as an advisor to the Open University of Arts. I was also part of a two-year government teaching initiate at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. My area of specialism is narrative illustration which aligns naturally into all areas of both illustration and concept art.
