'theotherspace' after Taberna Vasaria 1' Herculaneum AD 79 (2020) Mixed Media

My career as an educator started at Wakefield Technical & Art College and Batley School of
Art & Design. I moved to Nottingham Trent University and became the Course Leader for
Foundation Studies before eventually teaching on the Photography Degree Course.
I have exhibited widely in the UK and Europe with work in many public and private collections.
These include The Arts Council of Great Britain and numerous Universities. Detailed information on exhibitions, commissions and publications etc. are available on my websites: and

“The work is dealing with ‘absence and presence’ in a space that is neither ‘here’ or ‘there’ and somewhat ephemeral.
The fragmented space through the de-construction process is obscured and returned, erased and overlaid creating an image that seem unstable and uncertain. In the work there is an indeterminacy, a liminal state in which something is not clearly defined or perhaps impossible to define. “
