During the last few years that I have spent teaching Interior Design I have found a satisfying mix of practical design and artistic expression, this has helped me to develop my own practice, expand my subject knowledge and to find innovative ways to communicate ideas.
I feel that through interior design I am able to explore many subjects through a wide variety of skills, both practical and theoretical. I enjoy working within a vibrant and stimulating department, and look forward to developing and expanding the reputation of student work, the course, and the school.
As a designer I draw inspiration from a wide range of 20th centaury and contemporary artistic and design movements, I generally adhere to the principle that design should follow function.
Like the early modernists of the 20th century I believe that truth to materials is paramount, within my own work I enjoy using man made materials such as plastics and composites, to create exciting and dramatic spaces whilst embedding the latest digital technologies.
