I have a background in fine arts, architectural practice, and architectural education.
I have a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the University of Western Australia (UWA), as well as architectural qualifications from UWA and the Bartlett, London, and a PhD in artists’ film and architectural representation from Central Saint Martins, London. I qualified as a British Architect in 2004 and am registered with the Architects Registration Board.
I am Associate Professor of Architectural Representation in the Department of Architecture and Landscape, Kingston School of Art. I have previously undertaken the roles of Head of Department, Associate Head of School, Course Director for both Graduate Diploma Architecture (RIBA Part 2) and BA(Hons) Architecture (RIBA Part 1) courses at Kingston, and have taught Undergraduate and Postgraduate architecture courses at the University of Portsmouth and Kingston University.
My main research interests lie in the intersection between architecture and art practice. My interdisciplinary installation work has been exhibited at the Adelaide International Arts Festival, and experimental film work has been exhibited in the UK, USA, Australia and Hong Kong. I have two linked strands of practice-based research: artists’ filmmaking as a tool for producing time-based architectural drawings; and cyanotype printing to record light and shadow within architectural space.
My current research focuses on the use of artists’ film for spatiotemporal architectural drawing, and includes the production of experimental digital film as a form of architectural drawing.
I completed an AHRC funded PhD at Central Saint Martins, titled “Constructing the architectural moving drawing: transdisciplinary practices between architecture and artists’ film”.
