I'm a professional contemporary artist, curator and consultant. I have been a visiting lecturer for Foundation, BA & MA art students for over a decade. I ran and devised a professional development course/module for BA & MA students at Manchester Metropolitan University for several years. I also headed a three year long programme of professional development with Target Training for recent art graduates and aspiring practitioners. I cover: going self-employed, developing a business plan, securing funding sources and filing applications, how to approach writing an artists CV, writing an artist statement, how to cultivate a profile and the etiquette of networking, how to write successful proposals for exhibitions to commissions, devising a basic arts marketing strategy, writing a press release, and how to gain coverage. My expertise and knowledge is within the fine & contemporary arts, with knowledge of art installation, socially engaged art n practice, conceptual & critically engaged artworks, text based works, performance, video, digital, sculpture, painting, print and drawing.
