I am an artist and educator with particular interest in the contemplative aspects of pattern. I have a background in philosophy and cognitive psychology and studied for two years under Keith Critchlow, one of the world’s leading authorites on sacred geometry and the geometry of Islamic patterns. I have subsequently lectured widely on these subjects, and have devised and taught a number of practical courses on the geometry of Islamic patterns for the British Museum in London’s Worlds Arts and Artefacts programme. I have undertaken field studies in Egypt, Morocco, Syria, Turkey and Iran.
I produce work in mixed media, drawings and print. My work features in the collection of the Museum of Geometric Art in Dallas, Texas. I am the co-editor and illustrator of Miranda Lundy’s Sacred Number, book about the history and symbolism of number, and have participated in a number of group shows and educational projects exploring links between geometry and art. I am a visiting lecturer at the The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, the Slade School of Fine Art, Central St Martins and an associate lecturer at the Open University in London.
