I am a cross-disciplinary visual arts practitioner and researcher. I have a background and education in fine art and have taught on a wide range of courses at UCBC since 2008. My current artistic research examines the uncanny in relation to post-cinema, affect theory, animation, installation art and pervasive computer-generated visual effects.
