Current positions

Lecturer in Fashion Design


I joined the University of Salford in 2019 as Lecturer in Fashion Design.  My teaching and course leading experience began at  London College of Fashion in 2008 and more recently at MMU.


My teaching across levels on the course considers the value of research and process within design and preparing students to understand the context of their own world within the industry at large.

Research Interests

My current practice is in ceramics and the relationship/need for interdisciplinarity across the spectrum of Art and Design.  Exploring process and the element of chance and spontaneity to provide new forms of outputs.
