ARTIST / DESIGNER / EDUCATOR

AND THIS IS ME...

Providing that we are resolved to inspire the next generation of artists and designers to excel in craft-practice; to take pride in, and uphold the traditions and intellectual and aesthetic principles of our disciplines – and understand the value of all of this – there is every reason to think positively on the future of the artifact, whether it is manifested in digital, or in physical form.
