Personal profile


After working in industry as a menswear designer, I followed my great interest into digital design and textiles and began a PhD at the University of Huddersfield. I completed my PhD entitled ‘An Exploration of Digital Technology over a Number of Manipulated Textile Surfaces’ in September 2010. I took a Senior Lecturer post in January 2007 in digital design and printed textiles for BA/BSc (Hons) Textile Practice. I am final year tutor for the textile practice course.
