Independent Cultural Engineer

After graduating from Camberwell School of Arts and crafts with a BA (Hons) in Painting, I gained a PGCE:AD. Then I spent a few years teaching.


Next I worked full time as an artist gaining certain recognition including been selected for one of the 1000 residencies across the country awarded by The Arts Council England in 2000.


Also since late 1998 I began to exhibit other artists work in my home. The organisation Fermynwoods Contemporary Art became a formal not- for- profit limited company in 2004, and a Charity in 2008 with myself as Artistic Director. I have a broad interest in the arts focused on the visual arts. At Fermynwoods we were particularly interested in engaging with the environment (both rural and urban) especially with our Forestry Commission partnership, as well as current agendas in our locality. This was achieved through exhibitions, education programmes, residencies and outreach community projects. I resigned from my position at Fermynwoods at the end of 2009 and I am now working independently. The main project I am presently involved with is, Deep Roots Tall Trees, which I intiated in 2011. I am currently a Trustee of Northamptonshire Arts Management Trust; The Core at the Cube, Corby; the Birgit Skiöld Memorial Trust; I am an observer of the Groundworks Northants board and a Northamptonshire Ambassador.
